Ramadan’s Secret

~ Ramadan’s Secret ~

Bismillah, here’s the chance
to be more attentive
to the soul’s divine whisper.
Embrace all the subtlety
that constitutes your being:
become the Qur’an
that reads itself through you!
Dear one, seal your lips,
stop and be gloriously still,
taste the cosmic nutrients
carried by your very Breath.
This is Ramadan’s secret:
transcendently, immanently,
you are in a constant dance
with the Beloved,
learn His moves, yield to them;
explore the innermost,
know the selfless lover in you
that loses all control
and whirls like galaxies
when all atoms sing:
la ilaha illa Allah!
