Ramadan rhymes -2

Now adjusted to the fast Yet tired, the body has lost weight and is lite

Uncluttered body Now able to see, what it is to behold God, even a glimpse caught through long nights of prayer

Ramadan nights Are passing, over half are gone But the soul is refreshed

Re-acquainted soul With it’s pristine first state filling with new energy knowing again the meaning of life

Heart growing lite Heart glowing light

Ramadan days are raining on this scorched earth. ***

The Quran soothes It’s primordial rhythm resonates With the atoms in my brain As I sing and sing again Sura after sura caresses the tongue calms the heartbeat delights the ears

Hours spent reciting Wash away all the doubting In the grace of God Almighty The one, the all powerful, the only Why worry when All you need is trust that God will not let you fall

No other Effector Come, return to your Benefactor To the One waiting Lord The Overseeing Nourishing Lord And His beloved Messenger, our beloved too. sent to teach, An example, A Mercy, to the worlds.

May my brothers and sisters be Increasing in that certainty which Ramadan is here to deliver Rejoice, for now and forever No need for sorrow With faith, bright is every tomorrow And today Is a blessed gift

Precious these hours Preparatory hours To that time When we return To whence we came. That glorious place of Peace
