August Challenge 4

Fire. You can also use the subject to refer to feelings and emotions as well as the element 'fire'. Fire can also be used for cooking and for making all sorts of things. The danger of fire, the warmth of fire, the taming of fire. Any Japanese poetry genre welcome.


  1. the blue naked flame
    under a heavy pot
    of a mire poux -
    appetite of mixed signals
    when you look at me

  2. along the log
    embers still glow
    bushfire moon

  3. an edge of cold
    in the afternoon air
    of late winter
    hanging on your reply
    each day the postman calls

  4. from the postbox
    a tendril of smoke
    divorce papers

  5. months after the fire
    waking to moonlight
    flickering red

    summer's day
    reading the northerly
    with my nose

    from the horizon
    a thin thread of smoke
    dirty sky

    the forest
    carpeted with fresh green
    blackened stumps

  6. cold night
    my feet in the sand
    under the campfire
