Soul Eaters -- by Mimitig

Fire burns bright
I live in darkness
Fear the light.
My name is night.
Moon in shadow
Fear the light.
Brightness burns
Fire that bites.
Moon clouds the light
Cool soothes the fire
That bites.
Fast running cool
Swift healing for the
Fire that bites,
No one knows
Why the fast
Running heat
Burns so fiercely.
Paws, pause and cool.
Nothing left
Brothers, sisters – all gone
Fire eats
It all.

Graphics wizard File has been playing over at  where you can make 'word clouds' from a text - like this one from his own 'Found Letters':

and here's one from my Egg poem:

As you can see, they're rather fun.  Making your own Wordles is easy but transferring them over here is not so simple.  Those of you who are IT sophisticates will be able to 'capture' the image and can make your own Wordle and send it to me as a jpg.  Otherwise, send me a text that you'd like made into a word-cloud, then I can Wordle it for you and post it here.
