#74 of 365 – “remains”

“remains”

 

with a breath,

gentle

as unexpected

sleep,

it blows away,

falls,

dead leaves

from my tree,

disappears,

shifts

into the distance

like ash,

scatters,

burnt prayers,

remains

of my

faith.

when I wake,

a new

ember

will glow

in it’s

place,

and green leaves

will ride

Springtime’s

kinder

embrace.
