your lips linger as
     cinders heat thaws our last kiss
       do embers surprise? oh yes

       shower of wild sparks
     can love rise from cold ashes?
let our dew feed the phoenix

Two delightful haiku which rely on clever use of words, Susan. I would say that sometimes embers describe passion better than the fire itself!! ~ So pleased to be reading you again, my friend :) Warm regards & Hugs // paul
