Lighting a Fire

Every writer has “that” moment.

When the words bubble up inside and illuminate a quite mind,

Causing the restless, idle hand to twitch with desire and anticipation.

Words cannot pour fast enough from the pen.

The pen is like a match.

Taking the spark from an ember-filled heart,

Lighting the paper, engulfing it in a world carved by heated lines.

A world hot enough to brand hearts and imprint glittering words upon the brain…

Yes, the pen is a match

The heart a spark

And the mind of a writer…the kindling.
