#WritePhoto Melting Mask

July 20, 2017 , ,

mask

mask

 

The door was blocked by a large figure standing next to the fire

His face obscured by smoke, his identity concealed from us,

He moved with deliberate intent so swift and sure he seemed a ghost,

A phantom memory of the times when this place served as the center

Of a large and looming ogre with scary tendrils reaching into every nook

We were not sure if he entered the flames on purpose or was pulled

By fate or backdraft into the inferno that had started so suddenly

The night exploded as the bright red fire consumed the mask of power

Some rejoiced as the melting symbol of the past became a molten puddle

Most of us wondered how long it would be before the area would be safe

We all believed the melting mask was telling us to take great precaution

This poem is a response to this week’s photo prompt from Sue Vincent’s Echo.  Each Thursday she posts a photo. She is a very good sport to post for us this week since her own computer exploded and has made access to her photo collection tedious.  Thank you Sue.  We appreciate your generosity.  Please join other writers here to read, write, comment on last week’s prompt.
