Flames Burning Bright

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.


Flames orange and beguiling,

flames wild and free,

candlelight flames,

flames of passion,

flames that seer the soul

and set your heart on fire.

Flames burning hot and bright,

too hot to touch.

Always rising high and blazing,

flames lapping like thirsty tongues -

sending embers into the sky.

In a velvet black sky,

tiny orange sparks glow,

blown by the wind,

like mysterious eyes,

blazing in the night sky.

Flames like colored gems,

in bright sparkling orange,

flying high up,

then disappearing from sight.

Flames that burn,

flames that get doused -

by the falling rain.

Flames glowing bright,

flames of love -

burning till eternity.

Flames strong and bold,

turning cold,

here and there,

by firelight,

always near.

Can you see them burning?

Shooting up in a black sky,

outshining the stars up above.

Flames so mysterious,

by the full moonlight.

Flames of love,

that set lovers on fire,

dancing cheek to cheek,

long into the night,

they never tire.

Flames that stir up passion -

flames ever burning bright.

Thank you, Brenda memories always come to me when I reflect upon the flames of a candle

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on January 01, 2020:

There are many different types of flames.

The ones that you can see in the dark mesmerize me...i could look at a fire burning forever.

I like to picture objects in the burning ashes.

A lover's flame stays hot.

Good write.
