Until Eternity

Spread the love

Ashes to ashes, I thought as 
lone silver tear caressed my 
cheek. Until a time when we 
revert to dust, truth seared 
as heat of sangria sun ―

But what of rhyme and verse!
Oh! Let them suffice as rouge
sugar-bush. Embed unto field
of eternity; lest words scatter,
(wither) as autumnal leaves. 

I smile as blew puff of wind
swept plea upon o’ nodding
grass ―

Magaly invites us to recycle famous proverbs. I chose
to write upon the saying: Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

    There’s no way on earth your words can either scatter or wither because they’re so beautiful that they’ve embedded themselves into my memory. 🙂

    The tone is mournful for me, ashes to ashes with tears. This strikes a chord in my own life. I like how your brought in the sangria sun to add in warmth. Beautifully constructed Sanaa.
