Senryu- Life as it happens

Image by Briam Cute from Pixabay

like a wounded soul
pain evolves as night sinks deep
rises from above

light diminishes as
fallen strands of candle lifts
well of ignorance

consciousness reasons
duality justifies
rest is simple math

like flames of fire
responsibility is
a double edged sword

life is palindrome
joys reverse and sorrows swirl
reverse flip backwards

if one is unfair
and we offer the same meal,
would we all evolve?

Poetry form :- Senryu series (5/7/5 syllables)

Acknowledgements :- Thank you Colleen. M. Chesebro for hosting Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday #303, prompt is to write Senryu. Thank you Eugi for hosting Moonwashed Weekly Challenge # 126, prompt word, “evolve”. Thank you all for stopping by and reading.
