Ashes

Ashes

A Poem by Nipplegrinder

Ashes always tell a tale
tell a truth
That which has burned
never may lie
to the fire
certainly never cry again
That which burns
is insistent upon
revealing the moments
of its last plea

Look upon the ashes
before gales
scatter
Before rain falls
Ashes tell the truth
of
the fire

Very well written. For me I saw the ashes as memories, a reminder of my past, the fire. As you said "before the gales scatter", for me that meant, before it's too late. I really enjoyed your poem.
