The Quenching Cup – a poem

her name called       moves her,

from the summer’s scorching heat,

clouds teasing relief


clouds teasing relief,

give hope of a friendly pool,

to cool the burning


to cool the burning

she crawls to the edge to drink

from this lake of fate


from this lake of fate

the point        a quenching rebirth

she may soar         again

This poem uses the Haiku form with a repeating pattern of the 3rd line of one stanza to be the 1st line of the next. I am not aware of a Haiku form using this pattern, not that it matters. Give it a try if you like. I composed this in response to Jibber Jabber with Sue’s poetry prompt of FRIENDLY and Pensitivity’s Three Things Challenge of NAME, EDGE, and POINT.
