Ramadan

Starry night and 

the call of an echo

coming from the highest

of minarets

reaching through open

windows and air vents

scents of Magi,

dates centered on 

dining room tables 

around the world

Allahu Akbar 

as hands reach 

and prayers are made

Breaking the fast 

and lining up

shoulder to shoulder

hands resting on hearts

revelation sinking deep

the resonance of beauty

as it sounds through 

the masajid of the world 

This is faith
