Ash Wednesday

We have no right to be lonely / or sad or afraid.

We are but dust / and to dust we shall return.

For wind blows through the ashes / and they dance.

We are stirred up / by the very breath of God.

And that breath makes us one in spirit / one in truth.

That breath sticks us together / like oil / consecrating us for something holy.

That breath makes us / more than we are.

We have no right to be but dust.
