Dream of Glass Bangles 

Those autumns my parents slept 
warm in a quilt studded 
with pieces of mirrors 
On my mother's arms were bangles 
like waves of frozen rivers 
and at night 
after the prayers 
as she went down to her room 
I heard the faint sound of ice 
breaking on the staircase 
breaking years later 
into winter 
our house surrounded by men 
pulling icicles for torches 
off the roofs 
rubbing them on the walls 
till the cement's darkening red 
set the tips of water on fire 
the air a quicksand of snow 
as my father stepped out 
and my mother 
inside the burning house 
a widow smashing the rivers 
on her arms 
back to top 
In the Mountains 
Agha Shahid Ali (1987)
