After Ashes

At the scorched field in Meji village, the ash seeped into the soil with each rain and the winter gusts snatched at the reeds. There was a bone. The death of the animal was white. Crows were crying. Perhaps they witnessed it and came for the body. His aunt passed away. Father informed him about her condition a day before her death. The tragedy was standing on. She had been in coma. Her body was here but her mind had drifted somewhere else. Where could it be? He thought about the void in consciousness. And He imagined the emptiness left behind. He came back to Meji after the funeral. In the wooded darkness, intertwined branches shone like an engraving. Its gesture and rhythm consoled him. The earth turned a green a bit. The southern winds would begin blowing soon.
