A Tuesday poem, 'Keeping a fire'
Oh, my dear, the fire has gone out
Can we start it again or not
It doesn't seem it had a chance
Logs are plenty, an ember not
It will take a match, kindling, more
Another bad start? Shall we chance?
Not start at all, salvage the wood?
I say flip a coin, winner choose

Marian's said we can use any poem previously written or we can write a new one. I opted for a new writing. Her theme is "Many of us are struggling with darkness; let us endeavor to keep a light ablaze in the Garden."
My writer doesn't seem to be keeping very well with the theme. "Flipping a coin" is an antiphrase* to her suggestion, "let us endeavor."
