Temper

20200902_1253111538639346847972891.jpg

Like the red hot temper of blazing fire,
Thaws the low cold temper of icicles

Like the growing warmth of deep desire,
Conquors the cool decree of discipline

Like the heat of flowing blood acquires,
Control over cold bondage of loyalty

Like long lost warmth of real love dire,
Quells the thirst of lasting cool hatred

The warm fancy for eternal living never tires,
Erases thoughts of shivers in cold, dead death‘s bed


This post was written in response to the Photo Challenge #330, hosted by NEKNEERAJ, Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. I thank NEKNEERAJ for the challenge. The challenge was to use the above image as inspiration for a poem or short story.

Thank you!
