Ashes

Let those unsettling thoughts burn peacefully

Ashes will seem to be gloomy in fading light

Waiting for cover of night to satiate the embers

Dying fire of rage will finally surrender tonight

Vision will cut through ephemeral existence

Walking away from the plunders of vanity

No forceful mastery over ways of chosen life

Tawny canvas absorbs the disconsolate tears

Wiped illustrations of melancholy fade slowly

No false notes are exchanged by unsettled heart

Confusion does not beckon anymore a soul 

Darkness comprehends a silent communication

Sonorous truth echoes across the cosmic dome

Settled ashes carried away by conscious winds
