#NaPoWriMo: Day 16


One small hand
on the face of
a glacier sends
a fever fury
to encompass
the faint heart.

One spark for life
and pale ash skin
becomes brazen.

A glow to
show the
future frenzy.
A soul has
been doused
but a legacy
is illuminate.

One orb of light
to reignite a
desolate grave.
Be brave
in the sight
of darkness

One sigh
to surrender
One taste
to be consumed
by the scarlet.

One last breath
swallowed is
a key to eternity.
