Burn Out


 Scorching words should not be heard

We got no need for evil misdeeds

Atrocities breed from things absurd

Define your soul while sewing seeds

The best foot forward is the one that leads



This week the event is to Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word scorching.  Please drop by and join the challenge at Patricia’s Place

    ‘Define your soul, while sewing seeds’ had me totally. Not sure if it was a typo between sowing and sewing, but it gives it a new dimension altogether. We are mentally not the product of a single seed. There is so much that goes into making us what we are. I loved it!

    Scorching hot, the flame of words
    That spark conversations, no useless words.
    A passion released into this place,
    The full depth of meaning,
    Never to be erased.
