FIRE & LIGHT

I am 64 and loves cats, rock music, and horror fiction and poetry






Creature of fire and light
Emitting energies,
Lethal up too close.

Its light radiates
Outward through the darkness,
Healing from a distance.

Burning all it touches
People turned to charcoal,
All but burnt away.

Its energies heal
Or reduce to mere ashes,
If it reaches you.

Not an evil creature
Still its radiation,
Is deadly if it's near.

Starting forest fires
By merely brushing trees,
Not evil but lethal.

Fire and light and heat
Generated by the presence,
Of this life form.

THE END
