The Ascension

Updated: Jan 13

Line upon line.

Row upon row.

Shuffling,

Shifting,


We stand.


x & y axes meet.

The interlocking pieces of a tessellation,

Shadows of darkness bouncing off light.


Like chess pieces jockeying for position

In the rumbling silence


Before a battle begins.


Or as flights of swallows

Swooping back and forth,

The undulations of a Japanese fan in the breeze.


Sandalwood beads slip through fingers

Like grains of sand

In an hourglass


While upswept hands cup Mercy

Streaming from angels’ wings.


We chant,

And pray,

And plead.


Rhythms of Change,

Chained by Time,

Freed by prostrations of Love.

by Yusra Ahmad
