The ashes that form as the flames subside take on fascinating qualities of their own. Rings of glowing orange slowly surround and engulf the remaining blackness, until all is still and quiet and incredibly delicate.

The slightest breath will stir the ash. Sometimes it dissolves into disconnected piles of gray powder, shrunk within the burned form. Other times the ash remains completely connected, a body within a body that can be gently lifted up whole, richly black and incredibly soft, like the thinnest velvet that dissolves between your fingers, leaving only smudges.
