Lent 1: Ash Wednesday

Ash marks the face where the image was lost;
dust marks the skin once shaped from it.

Ash marks the doors to these bodies of dirt;
grace marks the scars skinned upon it.

Death marks the flesh once inspired by Life;
Life pays the cost to respire it.

Steps mark the knees bent upon them in prayer;
hope marks the soul there repining.
