These same streets of love
You once roamed
With your head bowed
Stewing in the hot ashes
Of burnt hopes
In these same streets
You shall walk again
As if to see what the narrow path
And heat were trying to reveal
Lessons and blessings, nestling
Hot Ashes was inspired by the poem Butterfly Love. You can read more of Benjamin Nambu’s poetry at greatbenji.business.blog, and also connect with him on Facebook here.
