dust (and earth) rising

I will rise
from the breath
of my own dust

swirling
alive
when the rest
is ash

different

but
I am
the same

everything has changed
yet
I
remain

and I will make
this time
myself
all new

this time
be only
a beating heart
only
the things
that will grow

and that
is all

it is enough

higher desires
seem a wish
too much

and I will sing

the breeze
will carry me
within its voice

a song of calm
that may
one day
be joy again

I long
for the days
to be joy
again

with
all voices

every one of them
a part
of the song
together
with mine

and I will
rise up

in the dust
that is
all time
