Dust Settles

A poem for this Ash Wednesday.  In memory of Jesse. 

Dust and wind are not usually friends.
Fine particles are easily overwhelmed and scattered
Unless the wind is spirit
Unless the wind
is gathering dust
is breathing life.
Held together by water and love that claims each particle and proclaims it good,
dust and wind breathe together.
For a while
Until the work is done
And dust must settle again
