CAROLE SAWATZKY
January 5, 1965 - January 21, 2014

ASHES AND DUST
Bathed in the ashes of my mortality
I am dancing.
Alone,
I am dancing.
Muscle and bone, body and blood
move together in imperfect rhythm.
Twisting
turning
trembling
feet heavy on the floor.
Trunk and limbs cry out
but you are not there.
Twisting
turning
trembling
I am dust.
Mired in the mud of my Creator
ABANDONED BY GRACE
