The Calling

From all the gates of heaven,
the shofar sounds - for you.

Listen, in this moment,
for the single note
that calls you to your self,

one pure sound

amidst the keening madness,
amidst the clamorous voices,

that call you,
with passion - or with reason -
to their sides.

Can you hold your heart
to this perfect pitch,

true to the singular resonance
from which your life has sprung?

From minarets beyond this world,
the lips of G-d cry out again,

a love song daily calling you
to the true prayer of your life.
