Trial, Path, Growth

 

Once blackened by the fiery trial

Now glistening in the sun

The dead and living intertwined;

 

One life is all but over

The other just begun

 

 

 

Though dead, there is reminder still

Of life-long reaching up

Stretching out and reaching forth;

 

To see the path beneath the growth

Is where my mind is stuck

 

 

 

The living shows the green of life

Dancing with the breezes

The path beneath is much obscured;

 

One’s path, perhaps, of no import

The growth is that which pleases.

Trial, Path, Growth
