Today’s Fridge Flash is from ten-year-old Kaia, who uses imagery to represent the fire of emotion.


By Kaia Wootton



Anger; the smell of smoke

Of flames, of still burning embers flickering in ashes

Of a fire, grasping for air out of the windows

A fire, taking everything down with it

A crackling log fire, slowly changing, forming into a destructive weapon

Anger smells burnt.

Burnt anything.


Kaia is a 10 years old girl in the 5th grade living in Los Angeles. She loves creative writing and hopes to be a famous author when she grows up.
