“FIRE & RAIN”

FIRERAIN

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
my tears flow like rain
imitating dew drops
disguising my pain
my passion burns like fire
my unrequited love
~~~~
natures fire
spontaneous combustion
forests ravaged
moorlands too can suffer pain
rain quenches thirsty flames
~~~~
can you feel my heat
you set my loins on fire
don’t let rain drops
subdue our burning passion
our love felt desire
~~~~
campfires protect
campers sleeping neath the stars
flames keeping water warm
rain just a shower spitting
hissing forming steamy clouds
~~~~
fireflies blinking
fairies flying by torchlight
shush watch them dancing
watch them dodging raindrops
as dawn begins to cry
~~~~
rain freshwater life
sea’s distilled freshwater life
swimming sailing life
all dependant on warmth
from a fire we call sun
~~~~
picnic barbeques
fresh caught fly fished rainbow trout
crisped both sides tasty
charcoal fire kept stoked
rain filled kettle boiling
~~~~
inspiration gleaned
Colleens choice words afire
words rained or tried to
a challenge full of laughter
I’m done had great fun thank you
