BEAUTY FOR ASHES

 

 

 

Flames lick the straw and the

suitcases we pack over a lifetime

with vulnerable items we adore.

 

We wonder without speaking, what lasts,

what remains the day without perishing?

 

Building is more than walls, it’s a foundation

buried deep; stones for support, the strength

that lasts.

 

Fire burns, water quenches, the word of God

creates what wasn’t there, while giving you

beauty for ashes.

 

The Bible is the rock, the answer for today,

the solution for tomorrow.
