Sunday Sentence

In which I participate in David Abrams’s “Sunday Sentence” project, sharing the best sentence I’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.”

She reties her scarf, letting her hands
linger on the silk, looks out at her beloved
hills as they deepen and turn gold,
and watches as sheep follow
a shepherd over the hill, straight
into a dying sun, and the evening air
opens with the call to prayer.
