Poetry
Is the Evidence of Life ~

If your Life
Is Burning Well,

Is just the Ash.

  2. Well, I’m alive – who would credit it?

    Not convinced about that ash though… you’ve read my homepage; you know I’ve got the fire connection. There’s plenty more than poetry left behind, and some of it is even good for the roses.

    I figure the poetry is more like the aroma – so evocative, so immediate. It alerts me, wakes me up, inspires me to action… and lingers tantalizingly after the blaze has passed, fading, dispersing.

    And if I poke the ash, there’s still a trace, a puff of memory
    a yesterday, a childhood, a death.

  3. and if my words
    should touch your heart
    just enough
    just enough
    to make you cry ~
    please blame
    the wayward wind
    for having blown
    my lowly ash
    into your eye
    !
