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 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

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
