Day 21: Fire

The dark hides from the licking tongues
They rise and fall, hungry for the air to survive
They bring forth heat to scorch and heal
The tongues are never tamed for theirs hearts are wild
They are free as the wind and ride upon them
But too much, they are gone, too little, down they descend
Ice, they hate. Water is fatal to their hot dances
It radiates heat and gives warmth to shivering bones
But it can take life away from the foolish once sparked
A force of nature, a freak of nature
Both names in one as the colors swirl
Red, orange, yellow, blue and white all give it life
Keep it controlled or the price will be high
For Fire can be life or death
