Thursday photo prompt: Balefire #writephoto


Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  Wednesday 30th October and link back to Sue’s postwith a pingback to be included in the round-up.  There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family-friendly.

For visually challenged writers, theimage shows a hooded figure in the darkness, silhouetted against flames that echo its shape. The figure holds something in its hand that may, perhaps, be a wand…
Master rising,
Servant chanting,
One on one
Both wanting:
Power filters
Wand waving,
Master rises,
Power craving.
Servant falters,
Fills with terror,
Water douses,
Tries to rectify error.
Flames diminish
Leaving embers,
Servant shivers,
Finally remembers.
Fingers burnt,
Not very clever,
Careless actions
Scarred forever.
