Ramadan Poem by doriano Ramadan Poem by doriano
The Call to Prayer during Ramadan is even more beautiful here than during the rest of the year.
It inspired me to write a poem and the picture is a mixture of a painting of mine and a photo of whirling dervishes. (I'm submitting it to a contest by *aribasultan).


RAMADAN - CALL TO PRAYER

While a scream crashes into silence
And turns it into a tumbling cascade of broken glass
The Call to Prayer makes it resonate
Vibrate
Fills it with sound
Like an Oud untouched by a bow
Like sunlight in emerald water

Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar
La Illaha Illa'llah.
