When the sun sets down the call for the sunset prayer sounds everywhere
And the hunger people feel one must declare is hard to bear

The tables overflow with delicious foods of every kind
And rooms all filled with family, loud and hot but we don't mind

We join together in appreciation of the food, the money, the life
A time to abolish poverty, and pray away your strife

The streets at dark are decked with colored lanterns and lights so bright
The sweetness of the atmosphere puts warmth to colder nights.

Glimpse at Ramadan
Thanks for this look inside a world I know nothing about. I have a suggestion for the last line: "...atmosphere adds warmth..." or "...atmosphere lends warmth..."

Pretty poem. -Philo

OH Ramadan
Glad you finally finished this. How wonderful and lovely Ramadan is, bringing family together and pretty much aboloshing poverty for a time. Thanks for sharing this.
