Fire

First, a wispy curl of smoke

Hovering in the air, it spirals calmly

Then, a single tongue of flame

Tasting the air for the first time

It leaps and dances with youthful energy

Growing larger, it likes what it finds

It crackles and snaps as sparks fly

It roars, consuming with a voracious appetite

Always hungers, yet never thirsts

Its steady glow flickers next, and casts shadows

Where there once was light

Its embers settle and sigh, reflecting on past times

Now it takes a final breath

It is warm to the touch still

Yet it is cold inside, living as a lingering memory

Thus, the fire dies.
