Blue Grey Ash

Blue-Grey Ash

I step forward,

Out of shadowless night.

I emerge,

Stripped skin bare,

Naked to the bone, and

Blistered from the inside out.

The last embers of my fire trial,

Burned out,

Kicked up,

In a sudden breeze,

Wafting through the air.

Blue-grey ash envelopes me.

To my surprise,

It sparkles

Just a little.

Like an epiphany,

This sudden reflection,

Of hope.

This shimmering light.
