Easter, Passover, and Ramadan
All in April this year. Yes.
Festivities cancelled, Yes.
Family reunions. No.
Time for reflection and introspection.
Yes. Very true.
For me and for you too.
There is no difference here
We all are facing the same fears.
We all want this to end.
So we can hug an elderly parent or a friend.
The three faiths
tied together in some ways
Renewal, Rebirth, Redemption,
A deep look into our souls.
Week long-time traditions
of Prayers, taraweeh, worship
Fasting, forbidden to eat certain foods
But later feasting in family.
Reading the books of wisdom
Bible. Torah, Quran,
Disciples and prophets have said.
We all have Faith in common,
Faith in God, in ourselves, in someone we love.
Nothing is simple.
We cannot give up.
We cannot loose hope.
We will overcome.
The pain will ease -up.
The earth will continue to turn.
The sun will continue to shine.
It is really up to us.
Even when we are socially distant from each other,
There are so many lessons to be learned by all of us.
One sweet lesson gained once again;
We all need LOVE.
Happy Holidays to all. Be Well. Be Safe.
Let us take care of each other.
