Photo Meme: “Pompeii”

Another good prompt photo from Shawn L. Bird, “Pompeii, 79 AD”.
These were my instructions:

1. Create a poem, story, or article based on this photo.
2. Post it on your blog.
3. Cut and paste the photo onto your post (leaving the Monday
Meme text).
4. Put a link to your post in the comments to this post below so
we can visit your blog.

pompeii

I am white
in mourning.
Not white like a dawn
or a wedding,
but white.

Grey in ash,
but white.
Cornered with
folded hands that
could be
praying.

I am old,
molded by
history,
yet no older than
the day I died.

Ageless.
Ash.
I am.
Dead.
Alive.
Because.
You read.
These words.

Emma Dumitra.
