The Orochinagi Snake

 

Image from Deviantart.com

When you lie on the ground
in pain from your wounds
the world around you charred and barren
drained of life, drained of passion.

You will wonder, did I make all that fire just to kill a snake?

When the memories haunt you
keep you awake with endless questions
the world around you grey and dreary
drained of strength, drained of mind.

You will wonder, did I make all that fire just to kill a snake?

When the thoughts of his touch
leaves you crying and alone
the world around you empty and cold
drained of love, drained of laughter.

You will wonder, did I make all that fire just to kill a snake?

Somehow I’m now one day behind on NaPoWriMo 2014‘s prompts. Yesterday’s prompt (Day 1) was to get a quote from the Bibliomancy Oracle, and the quote I received was “You will wonder, did I make all that fire just to kill a snake”. This is what came out of that. Enjoy!

Oh Londoners ye of far and wide,
forget not the history of a town with pride!
When fire begets fire, the city shall burn
from time to time as the ages turn!
From Boudicca, Queen of the savage Celts
through history the wrath of fire was felt.
Londinium never safe haven from fire
is now yet again the ravaged shire!
Londoners, Londoners I weep for you
when looters and hoodlums of thoughtless youth
set fire to the heart of a nation once proud
shame anew shall the burning capital shroud.
Oh Londoners regardless from whence you came
the fires that burn are hard to tame.
Over and over the city has burned
and never it seems has the lesson been learned.
From ancient times, again and again,
will London Bridge fall and echo this pain?
Over centuries unknown numbers were lost
the price of the fires is too high a cost!
Oh Londoners ye of far and wide,
with fire does not destiny stand by your side.

Fire


Look at this flame
all-consuming,
small,
inconspicuous…
Flickering,
almost dying
in the draft
of the smallest wind.

Look at this flame
the blue,
red and yellow,
dancing
playing but still
being played
by the chemicals
of the universe.
