If Ashes Built Pillars...

If ashes built pillars I would bathe in the sun

Like winter gave way to the scorching summer

To melt a sculpted beauty, a rare warm possibility


If ashes built pillars I would bathe in the sun

Like the settled pavement made of dusts

Invariably got smeared, in the wind so seared


If ashes built pillars I would bathe in the sun

And the monsoon that promises to tranquilize

Fails to extinguish, leaving burns I couldn't distinguish


If ashes built pillars I would bathe in the sun

Seasons keep recycling, as is in their 'nature'

Promising promises that can't heal blemishes


If ashes built pillars I would bathe in the sun

The sun that could only stay bright and fiery

Illuminating with flashes, to identify the ashes
