incendiary language

angry
fire
burns
from
careless
spark of
offense
which
touches off
flammable
pride’s fuel
and
emotionally
charred
words are
stirred
until
warmest
relationship
is reduced
to ashes

why
not
hold
love’s
only
extinguisher
(forgiveness
under
pressure)
and douse
arson’s
conflagration
before
it’s
too
late?


Sarah’s chosen theme for quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets is “ashes to ashes”… check out the link!

    This is incredibly potent! 💝 I like the idea of forgiveness being love’s only extinguisher 🙂

    I think we must… like the fast-paced formating.
