A haiku challenge about bonfires.
As usual Carpe Diem has given us an interesting challenge. The post containing it deals with the burning of ornaments at a fire festival. This is about leaving the old and taking on the new.
Fire is the medium for getting rid of whatever is holding you back. I think many religions, particularly Pagan ones, have a fire festival with this theme.
My haiku for this challenge is:
The New Year bonfire;
its white smoke rises skywards.
The flames warm my hands.
That’s a nice haiku I like that so above so below idea in this one … very nicely written. I am glad to see you here again by the way.
Thank you for your lovely comment.
Nice write up to your haiku, yes, hands are warmed, perhaps soul too.
Thank you for your kind comment. I think giving up unnecessary things is warming to the soul.
