    Ashes of Life
    By Jacqueline Amos


    The smoking of the heart,
    Flames burn within,
    Embracing each breath,
    The forest that goes without flames.
    The center of earth, the sounds of rebirth,
    dust-to-dust, ashes to ashes, I shall return.


    Hymns of heaven.
    I wake a fell of dark,
    Life in love, the sweet smell of joy,
    Dissolving emotions,
    Upon the sky’s,
    The harvest great smells of life.

    .I am he, whom thy seek,
    Thou gravest love,
    From thee, who gravest me.
    Taste the scent of rebirth,
    Ashes that fall upon my feet,

    I sought the essence of peace,
    the calm heart, ashes before the dark,
    the thoughts that shivers,
    among the ashes which we part,
    the heavens open,
    with the song of great thoughts,
    ashes to ashes, dust to dust,
    flashing storms below my feet,
    the ashes removed by the wind,
    majestic intensity, of now an then.
