Dust to dust


Dust to dust – eternity – the sky –

earth to earth – what is becomes what was –

the breath returns – the spirit soars – the I

becomes another I – in death a cross –

in hopelessness a power. A sun descends –

tomorrow – dawn. A sweetness in our sorrow.

Ashes to ashes – we – a body bends –

a womb – the ground. Instinctively – a horror.

Within – outlasting us – our bones. The stars –

beyond the sun. The people watching feel

another power. Christ has risen – hour

by hour eternity – the resurrection mends.

Intuitively the birds all sense the dawn –

sweetness – long before the light is born.
