Lent — day twenty-one

I light a candle, whenever I can
to remember that you’re here.
Your spirit crashed-kissed
with fire. It’s consuming all
I think I need. Ashes feel
dry and something like ending,
but they are where you’ve burned
brightest. Glory and ashes,
that’s what we are,
that’s how we live and breathe.
So, I’ll embrace each part of that
if you’ll draw nearer to me.
