The Mark Above My Brow

The mark above my brow

The Mark Above My Brow
By, Hugh A Tague III

The mark above my brow 
the symbol of life
a smudge of admiration.
A reminder of sacrifice
freely given 
a celebrated life 
of love 
and understanding.
Forty days and nights
the serpent torments 
tempting resolve
defeated 
he returns alone.
Winter’s cold wind
the ashes chase away
the triumphant light returns
palms are laid.
From the dust
life begins to burst
then as ashes 
we return to the earth.
A smudge of admiration
the symbol of life
the mark above my brow.
