Twittering Tales: Life Extinguished.

This  is  my  entry  for  Kat  Myrman‘s  Twittering  tales . My  little  stanza  is  based on  the  story  of  the  Little  Match  Girl written  by  Hans Christian Anderson

A moment in time. Smoke wisps grey, flame as yellow as the forgotten sun
As the red tip expired with the heat she died her life done

    Calling it a moment in time is pretty accurate Willow, nicely done.

    Poor little match girl…reminds me of the Mayfly whose life expectancy is only a day or less.

    That’s lovely, Willow dear,
    One’s life exists but in the life-time of a struck match. At a given level, much truth in there.
    Cheers!

    Really beautiful. This captures the central metaphor of the story and reads like poetry.
