Flame Voice (Left Frame) - an art work by T Newfields

Flame Voice

aren't we basically garbage pits
kluttered with years ah debris?

too much junk snarls our lives
muddling us in ennui

since all things are destined fer dust
why fear searing flames?

real growth involves
non-clinging

so welcome the fire's
embrace

Remember -
nothing is burning

& within each crematory
celebrate the dust of life

then be
compassionate &
breathe softly

Lis: This is what I want to remember on my funeral pyre.
Ron: (laughing) When you are there, there will be no memory.
