Yule log

Ref: renegradetribute.com

Last year’s yule log
Rekindled as a flickering flame

Heats the cold hearth
We sit around in mute study

Contemplating
A year lost by caring hands

Who laboured with
Sickly, restrained, individuals

To pant - one last —
long silent exhalation

As spirits leave
Their bereaved family wanting

To explain the
Empty chairs at dining tables

Set neat for lunch
Just last year when history was

About to be
Written in black edged annals.

Thank you. I really appreciate how you have encouraged me to write. May peace be with you. Indeed, have a happy new year.
