Uprising

This post has nothing to do with christmas. My poetic urge took over and here I am posting another one...still raw and out of the mill!

Uprising

fire oddly restrained;
lost in the fumes,
inside surefire stockade-

releasing the shaft,
consenting it to breathe
disregarding its rage.

soaring above blistered
remnants which storms up
unfettered and uninhibited
.

Powerful images gt! We seem to share some impassioned elements.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, sweet lady!

Very intense. It felt like holding my breath (while the fire does the breathing).
