Words Within Dying Embers Tell

Words Within Dying Embers Tell

what strange flame tended so well,

it doesn’t extinguish

smoke dances in anguish

words within dying embers tell

_____________

a candle flame still casting light

where shadows rush

haunting silence’s hush

sacred lonely fire: a beacon bright

_____________

our  fearful words no longer matter

twin white doves released

hatred’s illusion ceased

ego’s hourglass will shatter

_____________

my journey back from the darkness

petite mort so soul breathes

plucking off dead leaves

nurture growing light amidst starkness

_____________

what strange flame tended so well,

it doesn’t extinguish

smoke dances in anguish

words within dying embers tell

    I’m not sure how you do it. I have tried my hand at poetry so many times and have failed miserably. I love poetry and look forward to reading more of yours. All the best to you and thanks for sharing your good with the world.

    1. Poetry is a funny thing. You can learn the technical aspects of poetry writing and not be very good at conveying feeling in your words. It can also go the other way around. It’s a great compliment when a reader says that he or she wishes to read more of my work. Eventually I would like to have it published in an anthology. Thank you for your well wishes and the encouragement to keep writing. They mean a great deal to me.

        It is a funny thing…especially if you don’t know even the technical stuff…LOL…something very odd generally comes out. Glad there are people like you who get it and share it with people.
