Falling Embers (poem)

sunset_august_idaho

Is it better
to fall slowly
since the landing will hurt –
or is faster better?

Pain, either way

How far is it
to the moon?
Who will catch remnants
of a collision
with dust still falling?

Dust embers ignite,
sear souls,
leave smoldering sands
in their wake

To others, they
are merely shooting stars
