Life Is In the Embers

The Trifecta weekend challenge is 33 words for (of) "a new beginning." This is a recycled piece for the prompt.

"Gleaming Embers' by Hameed

This day is done
A thin pink vein
On the horizon

It descends behind
Treetops devour
Images in a mind

Flames lick the timber
Moments’ ashes remain
Life begins again in the ember

    1. Ha-I had hoped it would be perceived as the start of a new day according to the prompt. Oh well.

  5. The final line reminds me of the phoenix, rising from its ashes. Perfect for a new beginning.
