Day One Prompt.
We may as well start from the beginning. Today the theme for your blog entry will be 'Fire' the first element listed.
Find a creative way to talk about fire in your blog entry. Here's a little twist - Write how the element of fire relates to the five senses.
I wonder how the first primitive peoples discovered fire. Did they accidentally rub two sticks together and get a flame? I don't think so. My guess is lightning struck and caught some brush on fire. While it consumed the forest, one caveman grew closer feeling the heat from the orange-red flames. He was mesmerized by the dancing embers until a few landed near him and on him. The pain of the searing ember caused him to yell at the top of his lungs, drawing others of his tribe near. They could smell the smoke as it entered their lungs and smell the burnt fleas has they pulled him away from the inferno. The others also marveled at the glow and heat and listened to the crackles coming from the burning interior of the forest. After the fire extinguished itself a group from the tribe investigated and found seared meat from animals caught in the flames. One brave soul tasted the meat and found it delightful. Thus, from the desire for heat and cooking, the tribe now would attempt to control this element!
