Ramadan Photo A Day 2014: Days 21-30


Days 21 and 22: Fear and Hope
This world is not safe for children.
Children could grow to save this world.


Days 23 and 24: Gentle and Harsh
My faith; the cool spots under pillows.
So far from yours; damning and bludgeoning.


Days 25 and 26: New and Old
You are still my fresh horizon love,
an accomplice to set these years alight.


Days 27 and 28: Remembrance and Forgetfulness
The Almighty knows best of human caprice.
When we are ready, He is there.


Days 29 and 30: Temporary and Eternal
These sticky things like pain and doubt,
They too lose tack and flick away.
