Fire on a Chilly September Night

Fire on a Chilly September Night

Sep 2nd, 2007 by Don Iannone


Dancing fire, rhythmic orange and yellow flames

rising and falling in waves, licking chilly September night air

Crackling voices, speaking glowing light in shrouded darkness

The alluring tango, igniting promiscuous desire

flirting with wild, deep-seated passions

once touched by fire, causing us to burn out of control


Ghost white smoke on flame fingertips, reaching

high above, into another world

untouched, throbbing, beckoning

inaccessible, like our passion

before the flames set it ablaze

consuming all we held


Then the dancing stops

Passion runs its course

Light surrenders to the silence

We lie motionless

as the fire pit grows deathly cold

and the inferno falls fast alseep in darkness’ waiting arms
