An arrow launched
in the air, fire in its belly
winged beetles chased
They met on horizon top
Kissed the sweet flare of death
Inferno sparks, crescendos heard
We just saw how fire works
It’s dark magic, tragic!

      1. But you see AB words are poetic only if they are cryptic otherwise they would have been prose.So there is a lot beneath the surface there.Do not undermine your work!☺
