Ronovan’s challenge this week is a rich vein of fiery images.

There are gems in fire

flame brilliants, ruby red

garnet promises.

 

Flame in the west dies

sun sinks as twilight stars rise

gems cast in night’s sea.

 

Gem on a finger

is this love’s undying flame

or just a bright rock?

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
