poems, stories, and bits of not-quite Journaling

your tongue and my ink (pure
tinder and flint),screaming,
“Let’s spark words of loveso
hot, they curl hatred’s toes.”
for Poets and Storytellers United--Friday Writings #94: Storm, Ink, Love.
Nice Tanka, Magaly. I like reading how the prompter wrote for her/his prompt. I also showed my reaction to the storm, even shorter than yours, in a Senryu. Thanks for hosting, I wish I had more time lately, between medical appointments and catching up on "things", I did take the time to write. I was going to post a poem I was kind of proud of but then added my three liner...
beautiful and I Love "Let’s spark words of loveso hot, they curl hatred’s toes.”
Succinctly says it all!
Yes, words and deeds of love can blot out or at least spill over the hatred.
Your ink does spark!
Strong concept expressed concisely. :-)
Oh, what a good shout!
Very cleverly done. Thanks for sharing.
tinder and flint - let the sparks fly
Who could resist "words of love so hot they curl hatred's toes"? Nice!
Hatred could do with a little toe curling action, if only to give it some perspective.
I always enjoy reading your words.My good wishes.All the best Janhttps://thelowcarbdiabetic.blogspot.com/
