Write on Wednesday – We are learning to make fire

Write On Wednesdays Exercise 23 Write the words of Margaret Atwood at the top of your page “We are learning to make fire”. Set your timer to 5 minutes. Write the first words that come into your head after the prompt. Stop when the buzzer rings.

Write On Wednesdays

A leaping, licking, luscious thing.
Flickers fly from heated skin, fireflies dancing in the wind.
Easy now.
Don’t look away, sparks turn to flames with a glance, a caress, a murmur.
A voracious, vicious, vibrant thing.
Feed the blaze, don’t let it wither to ash carried far and distant by the wind.
Don’t drown it in a hurricane of tears.
Embrace it, be consumed by it, care for it.
Be bold.
Grab the frenzied warmth with both hands, let it catch your heart ablaze.
