Embers And Ashes

Singed, curled edges
Eyes weep
Smiles drown
Flames of fire
Burn hot
Ashes only
Left to cool
We sweep them away
While memories remain
In tact

dVersepoetspub.com considering the word fire. Whether by tragedy or intent, memory is branded hotter into our minds.

Poem #2

Two Fires

Uncontrolled fire
Melts and burns
Every whit
Till ember turns to ash
Gallon upon gallon
Seems like spit
Lapped up
On dry ground
A Paradise lost
We weep

Holy Spirit’s fire seeks
Burnt out
Faintly breathing
A tiny spark
Of light and life
Ignites within
A Paradise regained
We hope


About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

  2. Both strong poems. I do believe that the Holy Spirit seeks emptiness, and all kinds of fire burns away the hubris that keeps us cluttered. Nice.
