Prayer

Where we hear someone fall in street
The sound of prayer is heard in  knee.

Now we recall girl with the green eyes
On magazine cover muttering prayers.

A prayer sound is imagined on her lips
And a creak is heard in the mountains.

(Sharbat Gula the green eyed girl who had fled Soviet-occupied Afghanistan to live in Pakistan has been deported from Pakistan for having fake ID papers. She was made famous as girl with the green eyes by Steve Mccurry’s photograph on National Geographic cover)
