Growing thoughts

..give me your hungry..

Iftar time
Long long long lines
Waiting time

Imam sings
Joy does ring
As fast is finally

Dates & drinks
Then one thinks
Of grabbing rice & meat

Silent. Crowd
They fill their mouths
Souls get filled by

On the street
Feel the heat
Rising up from

Plastic sheet
beneath our feet
Bare to show
We’re humble

A breeze
Thank god
Ten minutes and
Its prayer time
