Sensational Haiku Wednesday: Flames

Photo courtesy of Google Images: The Phoenix Nebula
Tears silently flow
extinguishing anger's flame
sparked by childhood wounds.

As with the Phoenix
arising from the ash to
begin life anew.

It's a great sentiment. I wonder at people who can make that break and begin anew. I'm more of a recycler, myself.

I need to be with Phoenix, ride on its wings, and begin life anew..

Yea, not so good on the forgiveness thing on certain childhood wounds...nice picture, in words and photo, of what I should do. Thanks.

Oooh...this is probably my favorite of all the haikus you have posted.

I know you didn't take that picture, but I sure wish I had! It's awesome, and illustrates your work nicely :)

Very nice, Polly.
Very deep and well thought.
Mythical too.
I like it.
Happy Wednesday!

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

Love the picture, and fabulous haiku!

Funny, seems we're all using this year as a catalyst to change things up. Did you read my post right before the haiku about that very thing?

Kathleen said...

Who knew a haiku could be so powerful? Well done!

Tears as a fire extinguisher--I never looked at them that way before. Thank you!

I like how you put your haikus together to make a complete idea. Very good message about overcoming childhood hardships.
