Monday's Riddle: Excited Circles...


Hello, Riddlers! Can you guess our theme? There will be lots of these in New England this week. ; ) ~ F

Excite the circles, and I'm there. Keep me safe, but beware. I'll lick and flicker as I rise, just like magic before your eyes. My power comes from a spark, and once I'm up it won't be dark. Bouncing faster, matters shift, charged by energy in their midst. I'm very useful when you're cold, and I'll strip a spot of all its mold. A definite hit when cooking food, and beautiful too, when you're in the mood. Kept in a hearth or harnessed in stone, once I'm lit, you'll feel at home.

What am I?


I gave you a clue!

Clue: Rapid oxidation of a material in the exothermic chemical process of combustion.

  3. I'm saying fire since you mention hearth.

    Your mission, Jessica, should you choose to accept it is to pick up an award on my blog. As always, should you be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions.

  13. Flames and you describe while I like to have a fire in the hearth even though they are a lot fewer now that I've moved south.
