A simple writing exercise that took on a life all it’s own. Fire seems to be a recurring theme for me right now..
HER FIRE by Jeffrey Beaty Her smile A spark that catches tinder Then ignites with her laugh Her eyes They glow and sparkle To cloud with cautious smoke Her heart Pulsing with heat unquenched Despite life's ash and soot Her touch So rare that warm embrace So precious that it burns
