a haiku in response to this prompt by Haiku Hub
Inspired by S Lynn Knight’s Haiku This prompt “Fire”
Coals slumber, smolderStoke them gently…
Ashes to ashesnuclear age. no one left tosay the eulogy.
“Don’t be fooled muchfrom my appearance, dear sonI am more fire inside than it shows.”
Squawk above, bellow, dueling dove, crow.
A glowing light
In the middle of the night
A beacon of hope to some
snow in the garden,melting tears on rose petals.wilted memories.
on the sidewalk I shall not be moved
