be (one & only) mine

 

love’s fire fiercely burns

devotion ignites desire

vows consummated

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

valentine mine

Artist: Sherry Evaschuk     Artwork Title: Hearts afire


two he(art)s ignite fire

heat waves of desire

old dreams be yearnin’

new memories burnin’

but just lust is lyre (liar)

trust stirs flames higher

real love colors bright

true blue lovers right

veins bleedin’ energy

he(art)s needin’ synergy

married love k(not) hot!

crossing the quadrille

 
a bridge is a bridge is…

an act of faith

an art of engineering

an avenue of commerce

an advance of connection

 
a bridge is a bridge is…

an achievement of minds

an arch of triumphs

an arm of invasion

an altar of fire

 


Tuesday’s theme at dVerse Poetics is “bridge”…let’s play!

blacksmith bellows

“…They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.  Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.”  (Isaiah 2:4)


 

hammer clangs anvil

iron thrust into fire’s white heart

sweating over forge

skilled craftsman shapes legacy

in horseshoes and kettle hooks

tossing rice cracker to deer

night of mountain fire

japan’s yearly festival

dispute shrines or torch wild boar?
