Dance of Ashes

*

A beautiful storm

Breaks before me,

Nightmarish in measure.

Unto it I bow.

*

Crashing magnificently

At my feet...

Stepping back in slow motion,

I gasp insilence.

*

Tearing through the air

All around me...danger.

Hair fanning out,

I Turn.

*

Worlds depart,

Gracefully shredding.

With shaking hands hold

Together my heart.

*

Partners in fate,

Spin in slow motion.

Hand in hand, robes fly

In a dance of ashes.

*

Ignore the explosion

Of destruction, behind.

Into the face of fate,

Smile.

*

Beat of drums;

“Bang, bang, bang, bang!”

Ghostly feet impale earth.

Onward…

*

Possess The Spirit,

Perseverance; Keep. Going.

With hope, hitting the floor

It is sung.

*

The song of survival;

“Move, move, move, move!”

Filling empty spaces

In breathless lungs.
