Haiku Carpe Diem #96, Ember

Today’s Carpe Diem Prompt provided by Bjorn Rudberg is Ember.

Unusually, being away, I read other contributions before I got home and sat down to write my contribution. I was delighted at how many different interpretations there were on the prompt (Ember) and my mind wondered from flame, to ember, to charcoal…

Artist’s fire burns bright
Model’s passion by hearth light
Love formed from embers

Love formed from embers
Charcoal lines trace sweetest muse
Smiles, such memories

Smiles, such memories
Embers fanned by sweetest breath
Artist’s fire burns bright

    Nice haiku indeed – and very good concept too. The model as muse is a very clever touch.

  2. WOW! The life of a artist painting isn’t that bad at all … what a nice series of haiku, in that wonderful cascading way, JRB you’re the best … thank you for sharing on Carpe Diem.

    An artist’s impression is always something special as they’re a rare breed. Not many people are artists. Nice cascades JRB!
