Playing with Fire

Form: Free Verse

With molten heat
he explores the iron
cast in flame
and his preconceptions
of desire
mingle with the heat of the moment
refining the purity
of love
as his passion rises
like a phoenix
from the smouldering ashes
and such is the hunger
of the artist
who seeks the divine
the natural divinity of love
the elemental man
who kindled the blaze
within the heart of the artist
