Kindling Identity


Smiles scratched; memories scarred,
I remained as a stone being carved.
Destruction rife, hazy vision;
The last few flaps before being slit!
Possessions burnt; lives lost,
Molten metal when poured in cast.
Devoid of life, breathing in poison;
Like a tree that sways when lit!
Dancing with the flames,
I now smirk at the fireflies..!!

      Yeah! I tried to play with the concept of fire n flies; what better than the firefly themselves? I am enjoying my whirling around πŸ˜€ xx

    The colors of the image go perfectly with the fireflies and the emotions! Red, orange, yellow … passion, fire … dancing in pyre!
