Perilous Fire

Perilous Fire Written By Brett Somers On 3-17-16
Is it not clear That fire which you fear Will burn you when it is near So why do you throw Fire? With each blow You must certainly know That your critical voice Your vengeance choice Has burnt ten fold The very hand which you hold That fire

I adore fire poems. Like a moth to a flame I am! Truly I've been enjoying your work displayed here on the soup, Brett. Fire in the wrong hands is deadly. Another intriguing one to ponder. Always, Laura

It's clear though through your kind words that your words are more of the cooling essence of water. I think actual physical fires are nice too and actually warm the heart as opposed to words packed with this type of fire.

Thank you John. Sometimes we don't know where the fire is until we look at our own hands.
