Spin-a-verse: Poetry Challenge

Coal and Fire

Prompt: Rendezvous

I was coal 

buried in the Earth’s bosom

raw, naked 



to burn.

You were a flicker of light 

with orange flames 

playing with fireflies

in the dead of the night.

I was a forest

waiting to be devoured 

kindled to ashes 

and turn to smoke 

in your power.

You were a spark 

of desire

That made my nerves feel 

like naked live wires.

I dreamt of Prometheus

a rendezvous was fated 

and together 

that night 

we created fire.
