Battle of the Flames

Two dancing lights

One slight taller than the other

Towering over, hovering

Other ever so delicate, fragile

Yet brighter than the other


Doing the tango, fiercely

Taller light, burning orangey-red

Swiftly, slick

Bends upon the other


Smaller flames up, slight flickers against taller

Swoosh! Crack!

Burning yellow, teases

Backing away, no more fire

Wanting its own candle, secretly


Taller slowly dims

Pleased, prideful

Smaller giggles, no curtseys

Dances contemporary to the night

Flicker flame, burning bright & clear

Defying the other flame
