A Forger’s Workshop

Hey all! I’m back with my next cadralor of 4 haikus and one reverse katuata(the fifth stanza). Enjoy!

Forges bellowing;
Furiously toiling,
Flames playfully dance.

Anvils clamoring
For blow of red-hot hammer,
Smithy obliges.

The sledge’s strike augments
The welders’ dulcet warble,
Soothing harking ears.

Molten metal seethes,
Turbulent liquid cascades
Into monstrous mold.

Hammering away at words,
I mold magical verses,
Chanting in delight.

-The Forgers of Fantasy
