#256 - Fire

Apologies for the delay - I've been trying to make this work all day!  As I have sat at my desk watching the colour wheel spin, I've read and re-read the quote I have on a post-it, so today, finally, the prompt is inspired by that quote:  "Remember, you are not here to play it safe. You are here to start fires." - Sera Beak.  So what do you make of: fire?

Thanks! I'd already posted a series of four music-related haiku. Since your fire prompt inspired a fifth music haiku, I added it to that post:
Musical Haiku.

My first two postings to Sunday Scribblings, hope you like them.
As We Dream is my most recent poem written mainly with the Jingle propmt in mind but I felt it could fit here just as well.
Deep Burns The Fire although recently posted on my blog was actually written over ten years ago but is certainly an apt poem for the prompt.
Thanks for reading :)

The fire in you. I love how it spreads and seep into every thing around me, giving it a part of itself so generously.

My post talks about his fire. And the way it takes over me.

See you around people! :)

Hi! I've had two novels published and about eight plays produced, but I've got eight novels unpublished and thought I'd test the waters with kindle. After six months the book has sold three (!!!) copies, even when published as the lowest possible price, so I thought I'd better seek out writers' places and leave a message. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ancient-Futures/dp/B003Z9K4XG
Thanks for botherin to read this!! John McKenzie

This is a continuation of a personal story I am writing in brief excerpts on one of my prose blogs.
