The Fate

These are from the steps of a temple

cascading a thought so divine as to

know the difference between a soul

and its livelihood – the soulful music

which lives in the echoes of a forsaken heart

as to know the difference between a lover

and love that consumes like a flame does the light

I silently bestow upon the idol of God a flower

that has come from the womb of a woman teaching

the kids about the lines on the palm

that mark the fate as important

as the destiny of a Pilgrim on the steps of the temple.
