Do you have a fire burning within you?
The Sunday Whirl blog invites writers to write a poem or short prose using some or all of the “wordle’s” 12 word.
This week’s words are:
The Fire Burning
Way too much.
She calls it, tumult.
Too much tumult, she says.
But she is old school.
She says I am giddy.
There is a fire burning within me.
A fire burning.
Angry. Bitter. Resentful.
I am awake at night,
My eyes wide open.
Pink acrid fumes
Swirl around my face.
Which I inhale in
Small tight streams
Through my pursed lips
It becomes clear.
Everything is clear.
Step within me.
Venture inside of me.
All calm now.
I felt the heat in that fire – repetition works really well.
wait you said repetition. not duplication… 😉
I fell right into the rhythm of the self-talk “conversation.” The voices were nicely constructed. Well wordled.
Thank you. I really try for rhythm – reading the words aloud to myself numerous times over to hear what I’m writing.
Breathe breathe – great way to find calmness!
Relax, release, and renew.
love the rhythm of this, the way it pulled me along…
I watch for rhythm in my work. Glad you liked it, noticed it and commented. Thanks.
thank you. I think of poems as crafting, like wood carving…. sometimes like dental work 😉
