Ash and Fire

Today for Quadrille Monday, the prompt word is “ash.” I wrote this as a cherita, too, since it happened to work that way.


Doesn’t everyone want a chance at a new life?

Like a phoenix, engulfed in flame,
Rising from the ashes of the mess they’ve made?

What of the living flame of Love,
Lighting up lives? A similar story,
But the phoenix is a Holy dove.
