Muse of Fire

Once again it’s time to crown Wicked Word Wednesday Winner.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the last Wicked Word Wednesday, which was actually a do-over of the word

a·flame [\ə-ˈflām\]

adjective or adverb

in flames: ablaze

deeply aroused, as in passion

red or gold, as if burning

And now, the winners!

In Third Place . . .


My furnace I wish to employ!
It’s use is to destroy
my feelings and mind
with devious kind
I’d rather be with Georgie yelling “AHOY!”

Time to release the heat!
No using peat
there’s gas at the ready
keeping warmth steady

In Second Place . . .

Pleasant Street

all I ask
is a stroll through fragrant leaves
your hand in mine
and a flame on every word
that leaves our lips
this small request
under a burning red maple

And in First Place . . .


Aflame is a peculiar word
The like of which I’ve never heard
It can mean red or gold
Or so I’ve been told
It really is very absurd!

This season the leaves will turn gold
And red, which is strikingly bold
And what a great shame
When the leaves are aflame
That the weather becomes very cold…

Congratulations winners, and don’t forget your nifty badges!

Come back this Wednesday for another Wicked Word
