A Memorial's Anniversary
"It's compelling beauty makes all men
Enjoy the glory of the bloom;
But the eye should take in every view,
The brighter shades, the shades of gloom.
--Urdu Poet Ghalib
Kings and peasants alike are unmade by the loss of their beloved. . .as we gaze upon this structure of petrified grief, let us recall
that "the leaves of life keep falling one by one" and gather our own close in the interim.
Happy Birthday, Taj Mahal
