    Dust and Ashes




    from dust I come

    to dust, return


    between sweet ashes

    marked upon,

    reminding new,

    reminding now,

    eternity, as promised,

    holds a price


    penance, offered free


    in place of sin -

    it greeds at me,

    drugged selfishness

    of head-strong want;

    braid-binding

    opportunities

    in lies of fallen

    fancies past


    yet here, anew,

    I’m promised hope;

    obedience,

    a willing leash;

    emancipate

    from graceless starts

    my heart, to follow

    willingly


    Your Word

    Your Way

    Your Will

    very deep sentiment RLW Thank you for this and all else! (MEMORY) we have hope and faith in the future but truly the past and present are all we really know of life!

    Ash Wednesday. Appropriate Paula. And in the end
    “All we are is dust in the wind”. Well done Paula!

      OOOO - Kansas - one of my favorite groups and that's a great song!

    I too received my mark of penances this past Wednesday, perhaps I’ll grace him with my presences four Sundays in a row. Such a small sacrifice, four hour in exchange for eternal life. If only it was that easy, your poem tells me I might need a little more.

      Thanks for engaging with this one divot. No worries though. One step (or week) at a time.
