Passing Away

golden ash

 

Autumnal glory, haloed gold,

Crown of splendour from of old;

Dying embers, kingdom come,

Truthful speech from ashen drum.

Volcanic Ashes

ash hoarfrost

Volcanic ashes,

burn away

my expectations

for this day;

fertile suffering,

lace the ground,

embryo’s offering,

growth compound.
