And the Ash
Fell like Rain
Fell like Tears
Onto the Earth

It Doused the crowd
With a Scent
A Fragrence so Familiar
A Stench so Unforgettable

It smelled of Mothers
Of Fathers, of Sisters
Of Brothers

It smelled of Neighbors
Of Strangers, of Friends
Of Lovers

It smelled of Teachers
Of Families, Of Towns
Of Cities

It reeked of People
Once Living, Breathing,
Human
People

People with Aspirations,
Jobs, Homes,
Fears, Friends
And Families

Now Descending
Onto the Vegetation
Into the Snow
And into our Hearts, Minds and Tears
