THIS EID

When you hear our voices in Fajr
And see our knees in Zhuhr
When we bow our heads in Asr
And we open our hands in Maghrib
By Isha’a
Almighty Allah
Let our prayers touch your heart
…to heal our world

II
This is an Eid we celebrate sans
…handshakes and hugs
This is an Eid we celebrate sans live smiles
…and laughter
This is an Eid where virtual takes over reality
Almighty Allah
Restoration is your occupation
Restore for us our world!

III
We know you love us together as one
We know you see us asunder as we fight
…a thing we do not see
We know you hold the answer
…to all the puzzled fears
Almighty Allah
Let our Salat al-Eid light your heart
To heal our world
So our Azan will call together our hearts
…under your feet for continuous worship

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)

It was a very unusual “Happy Day” for you. Not being able to do it like other times. Just virtual contact, a little cold but wishing the best for each other. Very good your poem that reveals a super special day.
A big hug
