Poetry Wednesday – Wise Cinders

Wise Cinders

Press the smoke down
From skies suffocating
Press to cinders I may
Craft implements from
Which words to come
Wise and burdened with
Sorrows like the smoke
They once floated as
In dreams crackling
Red hot across lands
Higher than any flame
To tattoo my palms
While I craft more than
Words from cinders
Wise and burdened
