Rising flame or sinking wick - Haiku 'C'


Following paw trails
Tree of life, dead or alive
Flickering candle


Countdown begun
Rising flame or sinking wick
Open cry for action

How spent is your life-candle ??? Does your candle have a rising flame or a sinking wick. Time to turn thoughts into actions, don't you think?

This Haiku is written for the April A2Z Heights at Haiku Heights. The prompt for the day is 'CANDLE'.


  1. It's a rising flame for me, and hope for you too :)

    Rising flame or sinking wick - loved this line. I guess it meets its end, and perhaps that's why it spreads more light when the wick is sinking?

  2. How spent is my life's candle? Burned down pretty far, I'm afraid!

    Candle in the Wilderness

  3. I really like the question posed. I think flame must rise when wick is sinking.

  4. Using the candle flame, your poem represents a wonderful call to personal action, taking responsibility for our life's journey!
