Ash: Profile Of An Elf (A Fantasy Poem)

by Han M Greenbarg

Tarnished armor

Draped in cloak

Of searing black and grey

Battle scars

Beneath his tunic

Burns from wrist

To fingertips

Weary turquoise eyes

Vibrancy dimmed

Having lost a war

Smoke billowing

Firestorm surging

Shielding the young

Surrounded by heat

He never lost a fight

Until he rose at night

Charged the burning horizon

And was named

Elf Prince Of Ash And Flame
