Ramadan Kareem! Ramadan Mubarak!

I am reposting this because it holds much nostalgia for me. Because of Covid,
this year, I will not be in Jordan with the family.
This picture was taken in 2007.
Ramadan begins tomorrow inshAllah.

Ramadan Gift (Triple Cinquain) 


As one

our family

breaking fast with prayers
  all kneeling in our living room

my brother’s voice
now an angel chanting
tears blur my eyes in ecstasy

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

  Karima Hoisan
Jordan 2007
