Potent ash


Mixed year of blessing and cursing.
Of shattered heart and uncovered masks.
Of dreams that got set ablaze and then burnt to a crisp.
All that remained was ash, but potent ash,
Phoenix like reincarnation words emerged.
New dreams reformed,
Planted in fertile ground,
Grew gaining root,
Feeding on love, pain and sorrow.
As year turns a page potent ash feeds the dreams
From it shall emerge visions and plans victorious.
Potent ash shall scatter into the wind,
Fly into the storms and regain shape
In ink to write words across the page.
