The Season of Kindling

A quadri-haiku

By Kali MailhotPublished 2 months ago Updated 2 months ago 1 min read

Scattered Autumn rays

Speckle the scorched forest ground

Like droplets of rain.

Winter’s fired hearth

With gusts winnowed from my heart

Gives small sips of warmth.

Spring dampens my skin -

Charred and wet like tar glue -

Mulching my cocoon.

The haze of summer

Plagues the land with smokey clouds

Drowning in black tides.
