The Morning After

the candles are burnt
drips of wax on the table
among red petals

My response to Carpe Diem #1812: The Day After Valentine’s Day

Last Friday was Valentine’s Day and today’s theme is ‘the day after Valentine’s Day’ (not counting the weekend!).

Chèvrefeuille has shared a haiku by a Russian writer to inspire us:

РПУМЕ чБМЕОФЙОПЧБ ДОС –
ЛТБУОЩЕ МЕРЕУФЛЙ ОБ РПМХ, Й
НЕФМБ Ч ХЗМХ                     

day after Valentine’s –
red petals on the floor, and
a broom in the corner

Alexey Andreyev
