Ramadan: Day 17, 1437

Ramadan

is doing

it’s work…

the birds

are singing–

they are not

under

obligation…

the sun burns

giving silent

nourishment,

praising;

the full moon shines

into

the solstice

of summer.

the poets write;

hunger has turned them

inward

and opened doors;

they paint souls-scapes

of capsulized enlightenment.

Ramadan is a gift

to all humanity.

it lives in the hearts

of those

who know,

and it weaves its

trancendant strands

upon the unknowing

hearts

as well.
