Rocks and Dust

The same earthen diyas
That when alight bring
Joy and spirit of a particular kind
Burnt a woman today

If roses could make you hate
And lullabies keep you awake
If you cannot find calm near the ocean
Or breathe well among trees

Then let symbols and beliefs
Enter the realm of rationality
With rocks and dust
To keep them company
