The Winds are Heavy

"Rajab is like the wind; Sha'ban is like the water-laden clouds; and Ramadan is like the rain"

In the late afternoon sun,
the leaves speckled yellow green
on trees longing for more light to come
Blows a heavy wind, a rippling stream

of prayers like pollen scattered to the sky
seeking a soil in which to flower
A portent of clouds and rain coming nigh
Blows a heavy wind, of untold power
