Poetry from Art

The fire

The orange fire burns                                                                                                                     
Against my face.

The green grass
was once the floor
of a bouncy castle.

The tall evergreen trees
Were once skyscrapers.

The thick smoke
Is a pitch black room
With no air.

The distant sky is a blueberry,
inviting me in,
to help put out the fire.

The puffy clouds are dirty
candy floss, giving me
a warm feeling.

Where is the fire?
What were the people like before they died?
Is that the forest that my dad is planting?

My reflection
In this poem I have been learning to use similes and metaphors like ‘the bouncy green grass
was a bouncy castle’. My poem is currently multistructural because I can’t yet connect ideas to set an image to the same emotion. My next step is to try and set an emotion through the whole poem.
