Ash and dust
Ash and dust and broken trust
Puffs of Grey eddies
with embers spent

Grab, burn
What will you burn down
Somehow to rage round
Expunge by flame
again and again

Lament is deaths breath in my lungs
Grief stretched spanned
Bridge from life to nothingness
Yesterday’s fuel and fumes

Wednesday is
Half the week that was
ashen hair,
Lenten face
Cinder path
To Sunday which comes
Hidden behind the bend

Deep bended knee
ash and dust
tears and fast
God, us and we

a Lent Lament by Frog-Orrewing
