Ashes and Hearts


Ashes and hearts.

Hearts and ashes.

The convergence of this day of

Sacred and secular.

As if we needed a reminder that

To dust we will return.

We with our bodies showing signs of age ...

We with our society exploding?


Teetering on the edge of


What is this day,


Of hearts and ashes?

Ashes of hearts?

Hearts of ash?

From dust you came,

And you will go back to dust.

And, along the way,

There is Love.

Before, behind, beside, within,

There is Love.

Great Lover of the Universe, may there be love ... before, behind, beside, within us. Mark us with your love. Amen.
