Afghan Tree Of Life
Baluchi “Tree of Life” carpet from Mazar-i Sharif

We were born on the ladder of bone

in the tenth generation of sorrow

Peace was promised again and again

until even grief was broken

on the wheel of the sun

-Ghodi (trans. Jacob Freeze)

    I guess you could call it an act of piety, or contrition.
