volatile situation

Chevrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai hosts haiku/troiku prompt.  He gifts us with first line: “when every gust of wind.”  Each stanza of troiku begins with next line from original haiku.

 

when every gust of wind
fans bright flames of fire higher
smoke and ashes whirl

________

when every gust of wind
exhales crackles, sizzles, pops
wood door comes unhinged

fans bright flames of fire
higher heat of inferno
old shed roof crumbles

smoke and ashes whirl
choking billows engulf all
inhale acrid breath

we all fall down

Autumn’s glory shines

maples flame and birch blaze

melting into gold

 

Raindrops fall with tears 

windshield wipers ticking time

sorrow’s misty fog

 

Precious Autumn flies

away to heaven’s blest blue

singing with angels

 

Sweet life is brief as 

burning leaves and turning seasons

ashes to ashes.
