Man is the only creature that dares to light a fire and live with it. The reason? Because he alone has learned to put it out. ~Henry Jackson Vandyke, Jr.
The word fire is simple, four letters that can mean so many different things. Fire can destroy or be a symbol of rebirth. For every good version there is a bad one and for each of either there is most likely a story. What story will the word or image of fire inspire you to write?
We anxiously await a chance to read your smoldering poetic tales of woe and wonder.
So fire the desktop up and get to work! Cheesy pun intended?
