Solo Renhai

Gillena Cox, TT


Star Gazing


A climbing vine
carries star-shaped

Twilight, the glow of street lamps
The young moon cradles Venus

A baby's cry

rising above the sound
of a CD's lullaby

October 4, 2008


Notes: Re verse 2 L2: During the month of Ramadan (9th month Islamic calendar) the Muslim community observes their fast and abstinence; they look for the new moon slightly to the right of Venus, as the sign to end their fasting. This year, 2008, they were able to end their fast and Observe Eid ul Fitr on October 1st as the moon was sighted early in the morning.
