very intense. love how you 'played with the fire' here... and i am happy to know you're still making a stand. great take on the prompt.
Thank you so much! If we don't stand up for ourselves, then who will?
smiles...like how you bounce fire between passion and anger...sounds like they are only solidifying that with their attitude
you are welcome...i hope your week is going well...
Lovely write, Dana.
Thanks! I appreciate you stopping by to read!
Wow - know that feeling - sounds to me like you're plenty hot enough. A very interesting evocative poem - thanks. k.
Haha... Thank you very much!
That last two lines are powerful close ~ Lovely share ~
two very different kinds of fires you connect here...sometimes the line is thin from one to the other... happy sunday to you dana
This reads so very well, and I loved your choice of photo.
Resisting the fanning winds of hatred is a noble practice. Well done.
Really powerful blend of resisting hate and fighting against being silenced ... There's so much going on in this poem, Dana!
Very powerful mix of images. Nice!
To have great poets... there must be great audiences ~ Walt WhitmanThank you for being that audience!
