Ramadan Kareem! Ramadan Mubarak!

Ramadan Gift (Triple Cinquain)

As one

our family

breaking fast with prayers
  all kneeling in our living room
sublime

“Allah!”
my brother’s voice
now an angel chanting
tears blur my eyes in ecstasy
divine

Silence
our bodies speak
perfection in movement
heads press the floor in unity
Amen

Karima Hoisan
