Guarded Prompts

Wavering fires hurried rust bound silence
to delight thunder and tremble ashes.
Their unkempt madness puzzle and forsake reason
like tear-swept thorns quickly forgotten.
Between indefinite promises
cleverness jealously laments unbridged wonder.
Embellishing sighs brush and contrapose renewal.
Deserts learn green abundance from seasoned joy.
When fallen, ascend as neighbors
until butterflies flicker comprehension.
