Ramadan

"Ramadan", a poem by Yahia Lababidi

Ramadan

Yahia Lababidi


month of quiet strength 
and loud weaknesses

when our stubborn habits
and discarded resolutions

are re-examined under the regard
and rigorous slowness of fasting

testing our appetite 
for transfiguration

month of waiting and wading 
through the shallows to the Deep.
