Elements – Fire

Brush Fire Along I-84


Behold the sight of hell on earth.

Fear the light.

Helpless, watch.

Swift and furious, engulfed we die.

It would be nice to know

To control, to channel and

Even stop the fury

That unfolds.

Not frozen, tasty delicacies enhanced.

The fascination of dancing flames.

Relax, enjoy, unwind.

The fire tamed.  A friend indeed.

Lightening streaks across the skies

Dipping into the gullies. 

The grass ignites.  Trees burn bright.

There is no control.

Unleash the fire when fancy strikes.
