conflagration

conflagration by phil burns

he feels a spark the first time he sees her
on an icy cold Vancouver night
the January gloom dissipates now
her smile is as bright as daylight

the flames warm his heart without warning
he is never the fall in love kind
but the look in her eyes sends him reeling
in an instant he knows she’ll blow his mind

the fire she lights overwhelms him
never before has his life been so good
but he overlooks one tiny factor
a furnace devours so much wood

the inferno lasts only a short time
the passion burns out in a flash
her radiance like the a glorious sunset
leaves him discarded in a grate full of ash

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. http://anelephantcant.me/
