Between my shadow and my soul

On Loving Ramadan

Children of Adam,  Rejoice, as the Moon calls,
It says, Become aware of the gentleness of my light.
Make your nights mindful and aware
Empty your days of their harsh chasing.

Restrain your daily desires, feel the pangs of withdrawal
Followed by the liberation of victory
Bathe in my soft light and stand in praise of your Sustainer
Let go of delusions of sustenance, only through restraint
Will you see through this mirage of fulfilment

You’ll return in anticipation, to your soul’s rhythm
Love and praise, praise and love, without covetousness or flattery
You would have burnt a path to your core, your spine of existence
This is the Joy you feel when you hear the Moon’s call

Children of Adam, make merry while the ethereal contentment lasts,
Tomorrow may be Eid, when the Sun’s dominance returns,
With its blazing rays of production and consumption
That overwhelm your Soul’s flickering moonbeams.
So now, dance with the Moon and
Sing the Message in evening vigils , and rejoice.
