My haiku mentioned in David Mcmurray 's Haiku column

In Dhanbad, India, Ram Krishna Singh composed a haiku while methodically preparing a cotton wick and vegetable oil for a traditional lamp. Molded from clay, when lit, it is thought to symbolize the human body with a soul like a flame of light rising towards the sun.
cleaning the remains
of burnt out earthen lamps--
dusky temple yard
