For the 'Orange' challenge (I know, I'm doing these out of order ...)





Far in the East, fire blossomed against the horizon.  


The watcher in his high, lonely post leapt to his feet with a startled oath, peering into the misty distance. Far-off flames flickered again, and he thrust his torch with a shaking hand deep into the pile of oil-drenched wood.  


It ignited with a hungry roar and he jumped back from the sudden heat as petals of fire bloomed into bright flowers. Flames leapt into the still air, staining the evening sky a deeper orange.  Staring into the distance, the watcher waited.


Far in the West, fire blossomed against the horizon.
