then the blaze comes

 

the blaze dances wildly

like a tango of love

between earth and air

 

it reaches a full roar

like an orchestration

of heat and wind

 

it creates a searing heat

blistering the senses like

the forces of good and evil

 

be the blaze

 

dance passionately

roar completely

and sear injustice.

    Such beautiful words: "the blaze dances wildly like a tango of love between earth and air" I like the flow and the message of this piece!

    I wish so much that I could always be the blaze and "dance passionately / roar completely / and sear injustice." Your poem brings me a step closer! :D http://imaginationscandles.blogspot.com/2010/12/too.html

      I think there is a price to pay for being the blaze, though. That's why my word for next year will be something that incorporates rest! Thank you!
