THE FIRE INSIDE

THE FIRE INSIDE I have to tamp down the fire inside for not all are stoked with flaming eyes my cheeriness might be their demise the fire inside explosive it drives the quiet insane so i try extra hard to contain myself the gypsy dance leaps and thrives with clanging bells a crimson skirt circumnavigating the darkest night the fire it burns in rhythmic bursts crackling in time to poetic verse sunshine yellow and orange tongue the reflection of happiness 11/10/2017 The Fire Inside Contest

Such an interesting and different read for me. I enjoyed it very much in the colorful emotion neither angry or happy just in between as I read. Which was great.

Very nicely done, Kim. I love the imagery of the gypsy dance. Maybe I should take that route as well. This contest has me stumped!!!
