Musical Theme: Fire Ascent to the Higher Realms ~~ Sort of Sure Something Here Could Offend Someone Somewhere But Hear’s Hoping Not.

Okay, well, after a technical ‘fail’  this post is back–almost–minus one until found again. Definitely without all my chatter about it –for the moment.

Yes, this is the Ascent for Fire. I guess the first posting effort ascended somewhere other than ‘here.’

Now, interesting side notes to this post that doesn’t want to stay grounded:–I selected these pieces first. But my commentary for those other selections in that other post was completed first. Not sure I want to start reading anything into any of this, but it might be telling–or not.

For now.


Mythical conceptualization of Fire.

Grandmother Spider Steals Fire   ~~ Choctaw Creation Story

Rene Rismondo·


Fantasy Film Conceptualization of Fire. The Fire of creation in producing art and music.  Not to mention the fact that Ed Sheeran has FIRE red hair.  Yeah, he’s a Fire-Child for sure.

Spiritual Conceptualization of Fire.

Serpent of Fire

Raven Lythrum

Serpent of Fire
Lyrics by Ricky Asmodeous and Raven Lythrum
Composed by Raven Lythrum

Your presence magnifies
A journey that shall not repeat
Part of it is you, and all of it is me
A potent energy, that set’s my wings free
I fly without thinking, you’ve set me free

Light all the embers
Set there a fire
Deep in my heart lies my soul’s desire
Drown me in water
My soul has grown dire
deep in my heart lies my soul’s desire
Is the serpent of fire

As I calm my mind I ascend
Burning on without an end
The seals have been torn away
I feel the heat and consummate
Through serpents eyes I rise, ignoring outside lies
Turning the led to gold, breaking the enemies hold

Light all the embers
Set there a fire
Deep in my heart lies my soul’s desire
Drown me in water
My soul has grown dire
deep in my heart lies my soul’s desire
Is the serpent of fire

The serpent shall blend and will mend
My mind as my soul ascends
The lies have been cleared from my path
So don’t run away from the past

Light all the embers
Set there a fire
Deep in my heart lies my soul’s desire
Drown me in water
My soul has grown dire
deep in my heart lies my soul’s desire
Is the serpent of fire


Getting up close and very personal dancing with fire.

Spiral Fire Dance

Concrete Conceptualization of Fire.

Adele~ Set Fire to the Rain  ~ Fire on ice? Why not? Let’s mix our elements why don’t we? Some water, some hot skating on ice and a passionate song. Oh this fire and rain does not flow according that by Mr. Jimmy Taylor.

Rebecca Neudorfer


Flame Dance

Two flames dance into the night One steps to the left, the other leaps right Winds of change provide food for flight No way of knowing what sparks may ignite

Separating… merging… as if on cue Dressed in golds and red-hot blues Tempestuous, breath-taking, move after move No plan, no rehearsal… It’s die or do

Each step, each flame, fueled by desire She builds him up, he lifts her higher Mesmerized gazes wonder what will transpire Will they simply burn out? or spread like wildfire?

breathe in….           step left…. breathe out….            leap higher

                      breathe in….                              burn out….                        breathe in….                               burn brighter


[For some reason this is not appearing as it does at SMJ’s blogcasa. but I think this physical shape is very interesting. For the original form as intended by the poet herself look here—>> ]


Conceptualization of the Fire of love.

June Carter Cash ~ Ring of Fire 

Most people associate this song with Johnny Cash. I connect it with June because it is her creation.  Interesting how the singer goes ‘down’ while the flames go ‘higher’.


Conceptualization of Concrete Fire literally in the hole— as in the coal mine along with inspiration, protest against exploitation, fire inside and out and deep in the ground.

Hazel Dickens  ~ Fire in the Hole

    Glorious! I shall return in a short while, when I can linger and appreciate the warmth glowing here. XXXX Ok this is were this comment belongs. 🙂

    Nice Choctow fire myth. “Luak Mosholi” is a Choctaw term. The concept in trans-tribal, but those words are Choctaw.

    I sure to do hope you recover your clever and informative “chatter” as, selfishly, I wanted to read it again more carefully…… ((Eva))

      Hi again Bear. Alas, the trash bin is empty. I suspect something got crossed up when I split the post.
      That myth is a very interesting use of Grandmother Spider as it also connects her to pottery making. I think it’s very cool. The things kids do for Honors English projects are just great!

        I’m sorry about your post. 😦 I’m happy you knew where to retrieve the videos. 🙂 And happy you knew how to find them in the first place!! 🙂

      • November 22, 2013 at 8:38 pm

        Actually a great deal of my searching is intuitive, Bear. Which search words will give me what until I find what I really want to suit my thought tracks.
        Odd thing is that the abstract digital art with music is still eluding me. When I find it, it may get a post all its own. LOL. OOO Lisa Thiel Song to Brighid is making the rounds. 🙂 I like it.

    Very nice choices. such variety! I love the Adele song, and enjoyed the ice-skating to go with it. And, Johnny’s “ring of fire” is a classic that will never get old for me.

    The only poem I can think of that I wrote in the past that somewhat involved fire was one called “flame dance” (, but it was not one that I paired up with a song/vid and I still can’t think of any songs that I really feel go with it… so, didn’t feel it went with the theme for this prompt. I am going to write something new though…eventually. LOL When I think of fire, I think of my father – who was badly burned when he was 12 and almost died. I wrote a little of about that before ( Anyway, I have strong feelings about fire because of him. I have some ideas running through my head the last few days, thanks to your mentioning the fire prompt – but, it’s in the works. I have no idea if I will pair it up with any music videos or not, though. I usually decide that after I’m done writing whatever when I have a better idea of the overall tone of the poem.

    I’m going back to listen to your songs some more..
    Thanks. =)

      Hello Smanthamj. That’s a perfect poem for this post. May I copy it here with a link to your blogcasa?

        Of course. Thanks for thinking it’s worth sharing.

      • November 24, 2013 at 6:42 pm

        Worth? Ahhh my deer friend. Of course it is worth very much more than sharing. 🙂
