Fire

A flint
A spark
Up goes the tinder
Up goes the kindling

Roar and rage
Glow and fade
Flicker and crackle
Warmth all around

Warm the hands
Glow on the faces
Shimmering heat above
As shadows dance around

To warm
To cook
To protect
To comfort

Flames drop
Heat cools
A glimmering glow
Until only cold ashes remain
