Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 288 Smoulder / Subdued

fire

Wood smoulders and glows
as night time subdues the wind
-wolf cries for its’ home

The Drum

Beat the drum proudly,
Invite the crowd to join the march.
Spread the call to anxious folks,
Soon they will be responding.

Sing old hymns of yesteryear,
That recall historic glories.
Focus thoughts on things they fear,
And play to the mobs’ behaviors’.

Cheer the call of men to war
Praise them for their courage.
March them to their destiny,
On foreign lands, to fame, and glory.

Remember the soft bugle call,
That echoes off cold tombstones.
Grieve for those who fall at war,
They are our wasted souls of anger.

Satin moth’s white wings
erupt from winter cocoon
-Sparks rest in ashes
