Simple Possessions #writephoto

 

balefire.jpgSimple Possessions

She had little in the way of possessions but had always possessed a keen and curious mind. When do beginnings end and endings begin, she had always wondered.

Her playthings were simple; natural materials, raw elements fired by imagination. She gathered and molded ashes and dust. She sculpted with ice, forged with fire.

What began as child’s play was her life’s work. She had seen many come to their end, seemingly forever. She would not. For as things might end, so might they begin.

She was close. She stood in the ashes. She kept playing with fire.

  1. Could be a Phoenix tale. It is pretty raw, I just wrote this after having the phrase ashes to ashes, dust to dust popped into my head after seeing the photo. Thinking it could be a tale of ultimate alchemy, ultimate hubris.
    Thanks for the visit.
