My World: My Eyes – Earth’s Candle

February 24th, 2014 7 Comments

DailyPostWordPressThis is my response to the Daily Prompt at WordPress.

The prompt was to show them: Reckless


I can’t claim to be a pyromaniac, but I will have to admit that fire fascinates me.  There were moments when I would burn small things just to see what would happen, or what they would look like while they burned.  None of them were anything of any great important.  They were more things like, plastic spoons, paint drenched paper, a wad of hair from my brush.



I guess it would be the same attraction to fire that I have to tornadoes or severe storms.  It’s the unbridled fury of something.  So carnal, untamed, wild, uncontrollable, can be both destructive and renewing.  This doesn’t mean however, that I don’t respect these wonders of nature.  I most certainly do.  Something that potent and powerful demands it of us, or will consume us without discrimination.  This is what led to “Earth’s Candle“.

This fire, though watched, and controlled, as much as we humans can, struck me, mesmerized me.  If I could have, I would have jumped into the middle of it to be surrounded by it and observe its wonder from the inside out.
