Reflections on a Ramadan Night

you

don’t know

from

how far

back

i

am…

my

maiden voyage

was long ago

in a

qualified

city

where people 

thought

and learned

with

adjacent

citadels

established

for such.

I walked

the paths

and side streets

that brought

me here…

writing

on

a Ramadan night…

silently

rejoicing in life

and the pursuit

of faith

and the happiness

it brings…

pursuing returns

that accrue

in spiritual

rewards

and savoring

aloneness

as well

as company

as i keep

with grace

and space

and knowing

on earth

there is

no place

that can

confine

the limitless

notion

of

Love.
