An Eid Sonnet


All clean, perfumed, and well groomed on Eid day

To join in a divine celebration

That’s rooted in divine revelation.

Well dressed families parade out to pray.

Bangles jingle, all mingle and kids play.

The air is filled with joy and elation;

Surrounded by good food and vibrations

Of love and hospitality this day.

Eid is a day to forget all sorrows,

To rejoice and wear a smile on your face.

New hajjis swim in eudaemonia,

Returning to a welcome for heros,

Pure in spirit and radiant in grace!

What lights! What heights! What grand euphoria!
