Out of the flame



Out of the flame came

A rare gem that has been tamed

Life’s beat made humble



Admirer from past

Whose love a week didn’t last

Boasted of great heights

I love poetry anyday. Thanks Ronovan for the challenge #83Gem&Flame. For the 2nd Haiku, rather than use ‘Flame’, I chose ‘Admirer’ and for ‘Gem’ under the noun – Pride (meaning to treasure), I got ‘Boasted’.

Please read up the article on my picture source. I chose the Citrine gemstone because it represents my birthmonth.
