Prisms and Prayer-mats by Aaishah

Aaishah | Apr 20th, 2019 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

As permafrost accumulates
Below a skin
Callused
By the callous
Onslaughts
Of the world

As it pokes
Media disseminated
Rough-edged
Icicles of gravel to heart
And a desolate despondency
Stands hairs on end

Let me find You, Lord
In prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance
As a prism:
Parallelogram- standing
Triangular- bowing
Pentagonal in prostration
On intricately patterned prayer mats

Transforming the bleak
As Your Warmth beams through me
And gratitude is gently resurrected
In vivid shades
Of Your Abundance
