Fire And Ice

Fire And Ice

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)

A flame has no purpose

Inside of an iceburg.

An ice cube has no existence

Within a wild fire.

Yet a working fireplace has its place

During a long cold winters night

And a popsicle brings some relief

On a hot July day.

The irony of contradiction

Is the benediction delivered by Mother Nature.

Blessed are those who believe in

The unpredictability of human nature.

So much poetic playfulness in this write.

Human nature can be chaotic, or peaceful, just like nature itself.

Good job!

Cheers,

Thank you very much.
"The unpredictability of human nature... "
as the world unfolds... and we put people in charge.
However we have to try to have some semblance of
order. Even nature has a schedule according to the weather.
A very thought-provoking write... to ponder. As ever, Pat

dear Dale... if you are asked to sit and watch a flower grow...
you might say...I do not have time. however, people watch each other grow
into many different personalities... depending on what is happening and how they feel
at the time. Sometimes silence is like taking a "Nap" when you do not think or worry... a time to reflect and take your own assessment of what is happening in your life. Human nature is a phenomenon of
experiences and revelations of wonderment. truly, Pat

Great thoughts and advice. Thank you for sharing.
you just never know do ya? but you can believe that there is a white spot in a black soul and a black spot in a white soul, there is always that small element of yin and yang that balances us all, and makes it impossible to 100 percent of the time predict a human reaction to any given situation.

Thank you for the great feedback.
i really like the use of cold within warm and vice-versa...the ironies show well the contradictions
and an understanding on why some who have such warm hearts might exude a cold exterior for many reasons...fear of hurt etc. But then those who show a warm exterior can trick us...and later we find the heart is an iceberg.
such a good poem Dale.
but i must let you know, i had to stop in the middle and go get a sweater...

I got a thrill out of what you got from my poem.
Glad you had a sweater handy during the summ.. read more
I like your visuals of fire and ice. Each one pops like an old slide show.
Personally, I’ll take the unpredictability of Mother Nature, over Human any day. ( ;

(Thanks Bro, Now I have Pat Benatar “Fire and Ice” stuck in my head... lol)

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool
