flickering flame
weeps molten tears
moth lifeless

hope marches
through dark tunnel
revolution


This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights - Candle.

  4. I hope your moth is not the symbol of hope marching for change. That would be so sad.

  14. The first one is very touching really. I like the idea that the flame would leap over the dead moth.
