Home of Soul

By Ali Ashhar

They say no love

could reflect a mother’s love,

yet I perceive

my maternal aunt

portraying that care with the same light—

two sister twin one love.

In the drizzling rains of life

I run hastily into the castle of hope…

and to my ecstasy;

I find shade

under two roofs:

one stemmed from innate bricks

while the other from adopted bricks

syncing with the same walls—

my soul found home.
