Prayer and Life: A Snapshot

Woman shopping and men praying in Serrekunda, The Gambia, West Africa by Skendong

Friday in Serrekunda

repeated salutations
“Allah u Akbar” –

sound echoed
up the dusty road.

men prostrated
while she had shopping to do.

a sheepish look
the camera snapped

a random image
her prayer suspended

for who shall purchase
dinner for tonight?

poem: some things cannot be captured
