Fast

http://phoenix-dancing.com/past-events/ Puppets can’t break their fast
through their painted mouths

http://lowcountrycrossroads.org/events/category/retail-education/2014-08/ Rocks can be said to be
fasting forever

Mountain “fastnesses” are a kind of
stronghold or fortress

Colors are fast that never
cut and run

The Ramadan fast goes by day by
sometimes-uphill-day anything but

fast

though if we fasten ourselves to it
it seems to go faster

and with an “e” thrown in for
“effort” we can look

forward to a feast

and so faithfully fulfill our
fast


8/22/11  22 Ramadan (from Ramadan is Burnished Sunlight)
