Ash Wednesday 2019

there are no ashes
marked upon my skin
yet inside, deep
they scatter to fill
an unexpected emptiness

who am I to mark
losses, gathered 
in stacks
of nothing

from which I was created
to which I will return
where the only One Who mattered
matters still

For you were made from dust, 
and to dust you will return
