Ash Wednesday

This entry is part 23 of 29 in the series Morning Porch Poems: Winter 2012-13


Pale like the moon, your forehead
marked by a sliver of dirt—

How much time do we have, led in
and out of the maze-like woods?

The river quarrels noisily with the rain—
always, it tries to be more than it is.


In response to an entry from the Morning Porch.
