Ashes Remain

Abandoned House with 20 Years of Hoarding Up in Smoke
Ashes Remain

Shift in the wind,
Fire cleansed,
Wood, hay, and stubble,
Ashes remain.

Dross removed,
Not how imagined,
Life is short,
Ashes remain.

Twenty years hoarded,
Twenty minutes consumed,
Fire tested,
Ashes remain.

Worthless treasures,
Weighed and measured,
Found wanting,
Ashes remain.
