Fire has been treated in the most complicated terms of the classic Kurdish poems in which the lovers find life. Besides, longing and missing for the sweet has been narrated by means of it. This longing turns into a node; winds the soul and body of the lover, and hand the lover in the fire. Hence, love is compared with fire.
Love is an all-purpose term so that it has interference to fire, candle, daylight, oil-lamp and so moving substances. Love is a reflection in the body of the lover that has a relation with the present, pre-eternity and post-eternity. The tie between love and fire has become close relatives in the poems of Melayê Cizîrî. As well, Mela has treated fire by love; he has used it in some other forms, too. Among the terms such as mirage of fire, cinder, fire of Tur, fire worshipping to the manifestation of light, breath of fire, metaphoric fire etc., fire of love has been used as the most related notion in the love poems. In this study, the thought of Mela about the fire of love will be researched. Mela, in his poems, handles fire, flame and glow all of which are synonyms. Hereby, he discourses the terms such as burning, glowing, smoke, cauterizing and some other terms that have similar functions like fire. To express the love, notions such as affection, passion and ambition have been used; however, love has expressed the intention of Mela more.
