The Unsettling Enigma


It’s a mystery

How the blue of fire turns into reddish-yellow

For there’s no amalgam of several colors and their shades

to produce the effect we witness,

Closer inspection,

And I find out,

Beyond the breath-taking blue outline,

There is,

I’m sure, a transparent layer,

A layer of nothingness before red and yellow start their riot.

A scientific, chemical explanation exists,

Futile, for a mind like mine,

For I might jump with excitement

When I hear the cause and effect,

But I’m afraid that wouldn’t put my mind to rest.

And then I might actually personify fire,

For I would know the facts and settle for it,

But constantly revel up to unveil the mystery

Behind the waves of existence and destruction.
