Lighting fire

sparks_long_exposureSpartacus lit the touch-paper of rebellion against the legions

but it was Igniculus who took glowing ashes and blew softly

until the blue lady Favila erupted in flame

whilst drop by drop, Scintilla drew her animosity into the mouth of Etna

– and from these Latin sparks I memorize the language of fire

wriiten for 5 sentence fiction ‘Sparks
