With the word in the previous entry in this project, afire, being a synonym of the word in this entry, aflame, what am I going to write about here?

I could simply repeat the definition, i.e. burning, on fire or in flames, but now that I’ve done that, what’s left to say?

If I had a way with poetry I might be able to wax poetic about flickers being fanned into flames, but my only way with poetry is a bad way, I’d say. A very bad way, any day. Therefore, a poetic rendition is out of the question.

Four paragraphs, including this one, on aflame is more than it deserves. Next!
