child sat near effulgent fire
yet she had no reason to be joyful.
her whole world had shattered,
loss of memory was a blessing.
her mind overlooked immediate deficit
even though forgotten tears
glistened clumsily on her cheeks-
no spark kindled in her consciousness.
mother lay dead- father held for her murder.
Taking Option One from December Project of Cafe Writing, I use the following words too:
kindle, memory, spark, shattered, effulgent, joyful, softly, glistening
