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

  1. “lest words scatter,
    (wither) as autumnal leaves.”

    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. 🙂

  2. 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.
