THE FAST

Bands that bind, physical needs
desires broken, shake off burdens
of weakness, free mind, liberate
the poor from hunger, then one
cannot speak, in awe of silence
while change transforms, slides
as Moorish mosaic reveal God
in the sunís passing, ceramic tiles
rainbow colored, Islamic patterns
rotational symmetry, geometric
motifs, reflections, eternal mirrors
that glide, galactic mathematics
of organic molecules, describing
celestial life, transparent from strife.
