Among The Ashes - Poem by Stefanie Fontker

Would you come back
To search for my face
Among the ashes?
To burn is to cleanse,
If it would please you,
Leave what is left of me
Behind here, peacefully.
Live and let live, forget me.
I will never cease to exist,
For I will be carried
Past you by the wind.

    Bodies Burn In Funeral Pyres

    spent bodies burning in funeral pyres
    leaving soul free to freedom leave
    liberating sparks fly as ash upon wind

    roaming wind has no boundaries
    soul free to wind ride distant locations
    dust explores simultaneously multiple locations

    free wind sings songs of undreamed of sights
    solar wind carries us home among distant stars
    our soul journey extends into galaxies infinities
