Out Of Control

A Poem by Christine Anne Shaw

no slow smoulder here
sparks near petrol fumes wreak hell
too hot to handle

As ever useful with your poetising and as astute a human as anyone can be, Chris! Laughed and ouched my throat again, but worth it. Enjoy your week, have fun amid the dull moments

Smiling across our countryside, slowly kcounting the moon stones hanging on space.. ..
I protect others
By wearing a Mask tightly
Although I can’t breathe

An astute poetic observation.
Fiery outbursts quickly cause havoc.
Smoldering grants time to gain control--physically and emotionally.

Ahhh, the paradox of passion... spontaneous combustion that can both stimulate or destroy if overplayed! Great little write my friend... :-)

I love your Haiku...could be relating to so many things...the fires out in California, the hot presidential DEBATE of this week, or just simply a fire at a gas station, or even on a stove...pots too hot to handle;

Best, Betty
