Fire And Water

Fire And Water

Fire And Water

Fire

With togetherness remains in heart
I consigned his remains to flames
Amidst holy chants, stoic, tearless

Returning betwixt early dawn, night remains
We gathered purified remains-bones, ashes
Retrieving from dying embers’ slow burn to urn

**
Water

Journey through revolving door had begun
For final release of fire purified soul, bones
Immersing them reverently into holy waters

Fire

Shooting for a passage with no return
I consign myself daily to flames, chanting
Let true self remain, rest cinder a slow burn

Water

Immersing my being in bliss of his being
I drown daily in throes of forgetfulness binge
Connections lost, made, keeping me centered
