His body showing fatigue…

The fires raged for days…

But, still the power intrigued…

Never wavering…

The fires raged for days…

His mind almost… savoring…

His strength… no more…

The fires had raged for days…

It entered into his core…

The fires had raged for days…k9539227

His stained and blackened face…

The fires had raged for days…

Succumbed to the race…

One thought on “#FWF Free Write Friday: Image Prompt

  1. That was so lovely said, Whenever we hear about a forest fire we first wonder where it is and do we know of people who live near the fire. I know in California there are always forest fires. Since most of the forests are in high mountain areas and these areas do not get as much rain as is needed. We often think of the firefighters, however, no mention is ever made of the loss of Animal life or of their homes. Most fires are set on purpose or by not careful campers.

    Remember fires belong in a fireplace and we need to be careful to preserve NATURE and animal life as well as human life.
