Awake, Child of Stars
Awake, child of stars!
Shine bright against the darkness,
kindling hope anew.

I would normally classify this as #PoetryInLight; however, this little senryu was written as a response poem to a rather dark offering tweeted by “Let’s Get Crrackin'” (@GeneVatow) titled “Give Up“. Taken in context, this poem becomes very much an expression of wounds and struggles, so I’ve tagged it #PoetryInGray.
