100 Word Challenge – Fire

Posted by misterlou on May 25, 2009

A meme from Velvet Verbosity:

Funny thing, fire. We use the word for so much. He’s on fire, but we know he’s not. He has a fire in his belly, but we look and see nothing. His loins were on fire, when he was really just horny. He’s burning up, when really he’s ill. You’re fired, when all you’ve done is fuck up and lose your job. But to HAVE fire is to have passion and drive and desire, things we cannot see but in the result. The danger is in being consumed by fire, that result can be visible also. Fire that’s uncontrolled kills.

    Fire, as in Passion… Your passion for words is so much YOU and we are going to find it all here. I love this one,must have missed it the first time! There’s a song running through my head now. “Fire” by the Pointer Sisters. I hope it stays with me all day …

    Congratulations Lou, I like it very much.

    You are correct, there are many meanings to the word “fire”. Great job in describing them all.

    I love the new home for your writing!

    Hello there! Just wanted to stop by the new place.

    Very nice, and accurate, interpretations of “fire”. It’s hard not letting it consume you.
