Eid Greetings 2011

It rained THIS year around Eid.
Rained both, clear... and blood.
And the land was cleansed by the following morning.
(For those unaware, Eid is a religous festival celebrated by Muslims)

    There's probably no celebration going on today but we could always have our own! Just reaching out to give you a hug and say hi! :)

    Is this festival in the fall? I wonder what it all means - your words make me think positive and negqative too.

    Is the raining of blood a prediction, or a state of society? The cleansing is much needed in this hard age of steel. Very illuminating, dear Effendi. Love, daver

    I would hope the flow of blood could stop. I wish only peace for you dear friend.

    Interesting work..Is this religous festival one in which the worshipers kill an animal sacrifice?..Thanks for stopping by, reading, and commenting on my work..Sara

    Hussein, I know Ramadan/EID all too well as I've been living & working in Alexandria, Egypt for a number of years. (I'm American by the way). I'm curious about your origins if you don't mind me asking and while I'm at it, I very much appreciate this little poem about EID. Lastly, thanks for your comments concerning "A Letter to Elizabeth" and other poetry of mine you kindly read. I look forward to reading more or yours as well. Thanks again for "dropping in." Salaam a Lee-kum, Terry Martin

    Glad you explained EID. Strong descriptive second line that spaeks volumns. Thank you for your visit Hussain, Your comment is dear.
