Ashes and Snow poem

Ashes and Snow

In a realm where ashes meet the snow,
A landscape silent, in monochrome's glow.
Charcoal whispers from a fire long gone,
Blend with the flakes, in the dawn's quiet song.

Here, memories flicker like ghostly flames,
Dancing with snowflakes, calling out names.
A canvas painted in shades of despair,
Yet, in its sorrow, a beauty rare.

Ashes and snow, a contrast so stark,
One speaks of endings, the other, a start.
In this frozen waltz, they gracefully twine,
Telling a tale of a love, divine.

Beneath the sky, so vast and so grey,
They lay together, in their own ballet.
A union of grief, of joy, and of hope,
In the dance of ashes and snow, we cope.

Each flake, each ember, a story to tell,
Of battles fought, of rising and fell.
In their embrace, a lesson unfolds,
Of resilience, of warmth in the cold.

Inspirations Behind

The inspiration for “Ashes and Snow” came to me on a winter evening, as I watched the snow gently falling over the remnants of a bonfire. The sight of the delicate snowflakes mixing with the dark ashes was profoundly moving. It symbolized the ever-present cycle of life and death, of loss and rebirth. This poem was born from a desire to capture that moment, to explore the emotions it evoked. The ash and snow became metaphors for the experiences that shape us – the hardships that burn us down and the fresh starts that build us up. It’s a reflection on the beauty and complexity of life, and how even in our darkest moments, there is always a flicker of hope, a new beginning waiting to emerge.
