Fire whirls like a dervish
in a caftan of red and gold silk.
Fire twirls like a ballerina
in a tutu of red and orange taffeta.
Fire curls and spirals like a figure skater
in a gown of red and blue sequins.
Fire is a dancer who is dangerous.
Fire is a dancer who is out of control.
Yet, fire is a dancer who can enchant and enthrall
in her gown of red and gold
red and orange
and red and blue sparkling and sparking.
Yet, fire can kill with a look
with just a touch
with a heartless laugh
as she dances her dance.
