Rebirth

words long presumed dead --
ashes released from an urn --
the first verse ignites

Very artful. I've never read hiku before. Actuall I have not read much poetry until recently. I must admit I am enjoying it. Thank you for sharing, and allowing me to read different genres.

Judith C Evans said...

Thanks, everyone. It's always a pleasure to read your comments -- and your poems!

Never assume that a word is really dead, I say. It may come back to haunt you!
