For this challenge, we will explore one of the four elements: air, earth, water, fire. This week’s focus is Fire. Simply use the word and/or image provided and be inspired by the natural element.
Today’s prompt and image: sizzling.
Sometimes another person’s tongue
can lead me into temptingly dark
thoughts of seeking vengeance embark
like cutting out the tongue leaving it
on a sizzling fire to burn split
and disintegrate into ashes lame
so no longer a soul it will defame…
but, then, by grace a better thought
comes to mind to relieve my distraught
and I choose the action of repentance
desiring to let love be the flower
that radiates its fragrance in my heart’s tower
allowing forgiveness to become the music I dance.
