Three things that were different today

by Cornelia Rohde

With first sighting
of the crescent moon of Ramadan,
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi warned:
We promise you setback after setback
and surprise after surprise.
 
We wound our way on rough
cobblestones of Lisbon,
our fingers intertwined,
while twin sunbows layered light
in mist over the River Tagus.
