Inspired by Jerry Bolton's creative genius.

STALKED (A Tricouplet) *
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
embers announce a newborn as
fire begat fire:
on white-hot sheets of flame, a beast
with yellow eyes
twists on its umbilical cord
in strengthening winds.

it learns to graze;
the fields, ablaze.

the monster's breath sears the sun
which turns blood-red;
smoke chugs from its nostrils; i taste
its presence
bitter on my tongue, sharp like glass
deep in my lungs,

igniting fear
as it draws near.

this is MY disaster, the
ongoing drought,
because i prayed the rain away.
it's my fault.
the devil parting burning grass
searches for me

as its next snack ...
must watch my back.

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.

*  Hey, I only get one hour on the computer; besides, I ran out of words.  Thanks, Jerry, for the inspiration!  Hope I did it proud.  :)

You have captured the rage and terror of fire in this beautiful poem, Karla. I saw clouds crossing over Texas on the radar today and I wondered if any rain had fallen. I am guessing no, by what you have written here. We were supposed to get snow and rain from the clouds today but Yansa, the Goddess of wind, inhaled the clouds and blew them on toward Texas.
Take care,

I think this is truly one of your best, Karla! So spot-on atmospheric it summons all the appropriate emotions into a vivid fury... reminds me of the nightmares I had when I was sick with a perpetual high fever, such that I had the rigours; there was always someone out to get me and was burning me to the ground! Hellish or what?? Excellent diction and form... irrespective of time and word pressures! :)) TY Kate xx AND for all your love and prayers for my Mum... she is hangin in there! xx
