Ashes to Ashes


Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust

Brick by brick, nail by nail, now down to grains of sand
Rigid roots ripped from soil, no seed & flower path

Laugh lines & pearled tears,
hearts beating as one
Unwrapping & uncovering joy
Bed bugs don’t dare bite.
Sizzling through a timber shield, not even a yolk remains

Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust

Dreams wake & rest, clear calls through the air, swooping from bark to bloom, gliding above & through & below.
Naked freedom, full-filled, birth & death
Amongst what was built for us

There he slept & remained
There she loved & maintained

Home is where the heart is, the memories prevail
& unto dust shalt thou return

Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
