God breathed…..

preparing ashes,

last years palm crosses burned,

charred remains, ready to complete a cycle

ashes to ashes,

dust to dust,

dust of the earth,

here I am,

ready to mark and to be marked

with this yearly reminder,

the reminder that this frail vessel

has been made (w)holy

God breathed,

here lies my potential,

life given,

may it be life received,

tonight we will feast,

tomorrow we will turn,

returning to the cycle,

ashes to ashes,

dust to dust,

God breathed…
