Fire & ice

“A dame that knows the ropes isn’t likely to get tied up.”

– Mae West


Fire & ice


It’s cold

Like your touch

And I

Am a creature

Of the heat


Delight in the taunting


Of the sun’s rays

They force me


Complete submission

Fire Its The power

And it burns

Deep inside me


Your daggers

Of ice

Cannot penetrate me

I will laugh

As you melt

Fire & ice

      Thank you Kath, It is an oldie but one I am fond of for a number of reasons. It isn’t hot here but warm and not as sunny as I may wish as the sun is busy playing hide and seek with the clouds. However, it let me have another lovely walk up into some of our surrounding hills watching some sun come up and some mist over nearby hills. It is like watching poetry in action!
