Meditation on Recycling

Throwing sticks into the fire,
Watching them burn-
Convert to air,
Ash,
Dust.
Then you can make lye
from the ashes-
Ink from the charcoal.
Puffy billows of smoke
into your delicious jerky
and the air we breathe.
Crackling of water back into the ground,
& whatever remains
decays and feeds the earth.
