Ash Wednesday

"Remember that you are dust, and to dust
you shall return," -- T he Book of Common Prayer

It is
the sound
that startles me,
the fresh
of new ash
being pressed
into my forehead--
a knock,
an alarm,
a wake up
this being
touched by
with the
reminder of
dust as the
of life--
I pray
it is not
last word.
