PROMPT #370 – FIRE STARTER

The chill has taken hold and with the storms of snow and sub-zero cold, we need to warm things up. The best way to start a fire is with a good spark. You choose the spark… your subject is something that flashes an idea from your domain. Could be the dust bunnies under the couch, it might be a smoke alarm with a low battery (change that battery!). The constant ringing of robo-calls or tele-maketers on your phone. What sets you off? What sparks your ire (fire)? Right it! Write it!

MARIE’S EMBER:

LINGERING LABORIOUSLY 

No pilot to ignite.
No burst of firelight.
No flash-fed zeal. 
And that’s the deal
when I sit down to write.

WALT’S TINDER:

FIRST DRAFT

I can feel a chill. 
Can you feel it?
Who ever invited the cold inside?
I tried to stem the tide
but I just can't hide the fact
that the track on the window sill
is letting in that frigid chill.
I must hop to!, I cannot wait.
It's surely time to insulate!
Can you feel it? I can!
