Ashes to Ashes, Symphony to Symphony

Her ashes were tossed to the sea.
Those ashes found their way into aquatic life
some of which rolled up the sand onto the beach
— vegetation, turtles burying eggs.
Another’s ashes were tossed to the sands.
Those ashes found their way into dune life —
trees — beech, maple, oak — decorative grasses.
A third person’s ashes joined in the burials.
Some of those ashes flew up into the blue sky
amongst the stars.
One night, the whole gang greeted each other —
vegetation, turtles, trees, grasses, stars.
It was a magnificent symphony along the shore
of the Big Lake.
