Setting the Perfect Fire (IBMC 1/10)

The perfect match strikes the perfect fire,
But what does it burn so perfectly?
Wait, did I miss my cue?
You meant, the other kind of match,
Like the one made In Heaven?
Silly me,
I like to set fire to things,
Burn them,
Raze them to the Ground.
So strike the perfect match,
See if we can set ourselves on fire.
We can.
I will hold the flint
If you will hold the stick
And strike!




You did an amazing job.

Will we burn heaven to the ground
Or wait for the smoldering embers’

    I have added a pinback to When this is posted on Thur go to the bottom and click on and see if it takes you back to your site. If not, please comment on the post.

    Again, a huge thanks to you for such inventive “Wordsmithing” and the inspiration. That should earn you a Gold Star in records of the Poet’s Hall of Fame? Yes? Maybe an Eagle Scout badge for helping a Senior Citizen? LOL!

    pingbacks go from one site to another. In this case it would go from mine to yours after someone reads it and clicks on the pingback to find out more about you. So, you need to make sure your site is pingback enabled and that you let me know the URL you want pingbacks to go to

    flint and stick sound like opposites and only those can cause a spark to appear – good use of words and play on fire and all its elemental consequences. see you are doing this challenge run by PH! you are a brave man! I think its really daunting- wishing you best of luck and inspiration!

    Hi, really liked the twist on “match made in heaven”. Clever.

    I can pingback on “The Backside Of The Night” when I publish it tomorrow. Leave a comment and the link to where you would like a ping. Thanks again for the “Spark” of inspiration!
