Whittling Kindling

 










.......

Whittling Kindling


You thought the time spent on the porch

might get you a bird or a whistle, 

a whale, turtle, pipe.


You paid attention to proper knives, 

care and cleaning, and the 

just right wood.


In the end you merely added shavings 

to the fire that warmed your life. 

A ghost of smoke now.
