Filling the Ashtrays


beautiful ashtrays
filling them with euro coins
to give to the poor
~~ ~~ ~~
filling the ashtrays—
puff after desperate puff
till the last smoke’s gone
~~ ~~ ~~
filling the ashtrays
with incense from the temple—
hush of curling smoke

  3. interesting take on ashtrays

  4. I like the first one as it sounds as though they have given up smoking and are making use of the ashtray for a worthwhile purpose.

  5. Lovely series and I can so relate to this having smoked many years, I too use my ashtrays for incense.

  6. Love the use of the ash trays, each time with a different purpose
