Giddy for Sunday Whirl #90

Thanks, Brenda, for the wordle prompt!





giddy with fever
dull of breath
listening for the new year
i practice one small step
clarity falls within the fire
logs burn through     split
in a tumult of embers
the new year awakens
ventures out from black ash
giddy with fever
dull of breath

Great New Year's banner! Enjoyed.

I love the imagery in these lines:
logs burn through split
in a tumult of embers
the new year awakens
ventures out from black ash

Vivid.

Thank you for your visit.

I can see the fire grow, flames dance and embers fade. I enjoy watching flames.

Happy New Year!

Love how you return to repeat the first two lines, Susan. Nice poem.
