Phoetry: River of Fire

A poem, written for a certain someone, based on the picture above. Hope you enjoy!

O river of brilliance! 

On parched soil
Effulgence, flickering,
with the crackle of cinquefoil.
Ablaze on memories
and wild elephant grass
curving; cutting
past nature’s cuirass*.

 

*cuirass – A piece of armor; here signifying that this river of fire is cutting through the inertia of nature (can be also interpreted as regressive conventions of society)
