Inside Krishna's Temple MAG
Kneeling,bending, bowing, chanting.
Fragrant burning sticks delight mynose.
Confused like a foreigner.
I watch my own mom
a mixture of saffron,
peach and apricot
shames my jeans andt-shirt.
I study the statue of Krishna adorned
in goldcrowns, rope necklaces, bracelets, and jewels.
Suddenly, I look at my mom'sface
To the bindi, red dot, between her eyes.
Now Icomprehend the meaning of
kneeling, bending, bowing, chanting.
