Grandma’s Fire

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 152 Color/Warmth

When I was young, my grandmother had an old wood burning stove that she would use to heat the kitchen and make meals. She would get up early on cold winter mornings to stir the ashes and rekindle the fire. Once started, it would only take a few minutes for grandma and the fire to bring the house back to life.

Ash colored embers
Stoked deep in smoldering warmth
Gave our morning life

Beneath The Winter Snow

Frozen Leaves

Last fall’s colors fade
Underneath the winter snow
Life begins anew

This season of transition
Helps refresh immortal souls

1)
grey covers my soul
when winters edge slices through
last colors of fall

2)
Mocking Jays cover-
rebellions call to alarm
changes color scene

3)
in endless cover
Gnowee colors the night sky
ceaseless mourning son

4)
shifting sound color
turns night’s darkness into sight
when fear seeks cover

5)
culture of cover
kept race in lines of color
protest lives matters

-Clarence Holm
