Fire by Gabriel

 

The fire is a fierce lion,

Stalking its prey.

He jumps with aggression,

Blazing and burning through the air. 

 

When the night wind roars,

He leaps across the sky.

Glorious as a gliding bird,

Embracing the night with his warmth.

 

Dangerous jaws of burning flames,

Vicious as he makes his final move,

Destroying his prey beneath,

Then quiet, so quiet, he takes his last breath.

 

The Grass by Tilly

 

Vicious and green,

The grass is a snake.

Swishing and swaying,

and always awake.

 

With no mercy,

Snapping at ankles.

Curling and swirling,

and hiding in brambles.

 

A writhing beast,

As green as a lime.

Over valleys,

It climbs, it climbs.
