Anyone ever told you you’re on fire?
When your brain’s crackling with inspiration
and ideas that you’re burning to share;
when your pen’s almost smoking as you write
then you might say, “I’m on fire today!”
Inspiration comes in bursts, and it’s exciting for writers when they’re on fire! Ideas come at all sorts of unexpected times and in surprising places. Who’d have thought they’d find a poem – or at least, a little ditty – on a garage forecourt?
What is the point of fire?
To keep us warm,
To cook our food,
To frighten wolves away,
To burn as beacons
Back in the day.
But a fire point?
Without a doubt,
To put fires out.
