“Ash” for dVerse Poets


Wood to ash and flesh to dust,
stone to sand and iron to rust.
Leather snaps and fabrics fray.
All things living must wear away.
What we seek to save, we save in vain.
Nature wipes out every gain,
and blessedly, also our pain.


For the dVerse Poets Quadrille prompt: Ash (44 words only)
