First Day

Today is the first day of Ramadhan
The day is peaceful and calm
There is a stillness in the house and outside
Everyone is resting except those who aren't fasting
Even the cats are not making any sound
I can't see them around
I am not able to render my fast on this first day for an excusable reason
And decided to do the laundry
The air is cool outside
Only the sound of birds can be heard
Their tweeting seem louder today
Amplified by the silence
A small bird accidentally finds its way to our room through an open window
It is hopping from place to place
Then flies around looking for escape
It seems desperate to get out
It is restlestly flying and hopping in the wire
It flies away after finding the crack in the glass transom above the window
With a hole the size of a fist  
That a tiny bird can pass through
The day goes by silently
Until it is time to prepare Iftar
