Hell Fire © Donna Pierce-Clark

A little diversion from the wind and the water...........Fire.
All shape the earth: the wind, the water, and the fire.
All cleanse and re-shape whatever they touch.
Forces of Nature, The Hand of God.
With the Wind and with the Water,
something is left behind.
But, with Fire, nothing is left behind.
At least nothing tangible.
If the thing consumed is human,
there is a spirit that must go somewhere.
What is left after the fire?
Where will our spirit be, for Eternity?


  1. Ouch …. that is exactly the first thought that came into my head when I first saw this one. It looks like what I would expect hell to look like.

    1. Lol........that's exactly what happened to me as I was completing this painting. These inks are poured, tilted, and re-tilted numerous times. As I let them dry, titles begin popping into my mind. "Hell Fire" was the first and only title that came to mind, it stuck.
