Ghazal at New Dawn

To once transcend and yet remain here A life, what was, some wind hath lain here. A fortress sinks by fate and blood What glory, tell, made life adorned here? Supple trace of ill containment So forced from death but to be chained here. Lilac crumbs mark travels homeward Or a path unseen to life beyond here. How I, a rose on nested silk Make peace at last to travel on here.
