Geez!  I got this one, though.  All things artificial and man-made laying rusted and broken, but the natural world of the garden inside cannot rust.  So it was necessary that you come to a state of peace with nature, that you feel the grass and greet the sun, before returning to dust.  

I'm not sure if you mean to say that you return to nature, or you are rejected by nature and turn to dust as you were an ash, which matches the desolate, "rusted" imagery you attributed to the world of man...

Real head-scratcher, but your talent is solid and you write with a skill I can only dream of someday developing.  It'd be a tragedy not to include this in Reflections.

Hey s b,
It is "their" not "thier". Want it in the book just right. So it gets my vote. Cool write!

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Butterflies in kiss of me--
dance to bass of bumblebee.
I spied a sundial in the weeds
the ancient brought me to my knees
pulling grass by the handful
wishing sun would shadow dial...
I pulled the last grasp of the grass
and then the sun burst through in smile.

He played upon a wing of time
casting shadow in the rust
silent darkness rang the chime--
and I, the ash, returned to dust.

That's IT - I give UP.

  Okay, I'm too stubborn for that, but thank goodness I have someone like you to read and be inspired by.

K - this hurts:

He played upon a wing of time
casting shadow in the rust
silent darkness rang the chime--
and I, the ash, returned to dust.

but is lovely - you are just . . .  you
xxoo good luck
