In The Eyes Of The Mind


Thundering and lighting at same time
Someone must have vexed the gods
For his messagers to be at rampage
My father said out loud

Twice it stroke again at the same direction
We must appeased the gods
Before his messagers left us
A ruin that cannot be fixed

He heads for his inner chamber
This also serves as a religious closet
For in this room
we worship the gods of our ancestors

We heard shouting from the direction
father had gone
Pooh! Lighting had caught one of the idols
Perhaps the idol had vexed the gods
I said out loud

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
