Keeping Embers Aglow

Expelled from the womb
A seed birthed by unrestrained passion
Ignited and inflamed
Breeds more of the same
An ever burning fire
That none can quench
So we think the answer is
Destroy the seed
Even gardeners plant in season
Rejoicing in good fruit

Quadrille Monday at  the prompt is burn and this is my pro-life poem. A quadrille is a poem of exactly 44 words excluding the title.

    Very good Mary…. I had to read through it a few times to grasp your meaning. Expelling the seed a vivid picture of what happens every day. Passions unrestrained will keep the service in business!
