Honey bucket lightning strike

Hailstones got the best of me

Sometimes when I think of you

Wild Fire Odyssey


Elusive currents running swiftly

Circumvent the rocks below

Quenching thoughts of heated passion

Sequestered by your whirlpool’s flow


Glowing embers dot the skyline

Impending scorch I cannot flee

Flames consume my own inaction

Wild Fire Odyssey


A wispy drizzle from haze above

Coats my ego with ashen crust

Soap and water will not cleanse it

Remove it though I know I must


Roaring cyclone tastes the smoke cloud

Essence sublimate’s a hint of me

Spits it out in disbelief

Wild fire Odyssey

A lot of mixed metaphors... Full of fire and brimstone and lust. I like.

Reviewed by Sage Sweetwater 7/19/2010
What strikes me about this is how well it doesn't preach, but rather straighforwardly pounds the guilty...there's incredible force here in these quatrains that wield an electrifying message. The volts stupefy a raging egomaniac from devlish infliction and carnage no more...this honey bucket lightning in the photo looks like it is coming from a snake and Wild Fire Odyssey reverses the charge right back to its maker...there's some Truth here and some Science Fiction which I know you are fond of, well.

Are we talking about the weather here,whether hail, storm, or a rod of fire, still I know it's hot, whatever. Blessings! Jasmin Horst

Deep and heartfelt, Patrick. Deep meaning indeed. Well done.
Reviewed by Mark Lichterman 7/18/2010
Is this something you desert people have to contend with every now and then: lightening; hale stones; glowing embers and wispy drizzle? Well, yeah, Southern California has been having some creepy kind of stuff lately. Hell, I missed a rainstorm by five miles last week while eating in Calabasas when it rained buckets in Westlake Village.
