ash-borne (Holy Week)

“ash-borne”
 
blue the fire, kiln to blaze,
holy potter turning clay,

wheel to round and crossing make,
shadow fold within your gaze.

seared the palms we waved of you,
ashes leaving here to trace,

maker marking as you will,
cupping embers yet engraced.

 

–William B. Jones, Lent, 2012
