Shabbat Peace

A voice in the calm evening breeze gently calls my name,
lifting my eyes to unfolding wonders.

How the shinning and answering moon glimmers across cloudless skies
--a symphony of the heartbeat's sounds.

Ah, how this restful lullaby opens joyful Sabbath gates.

Tonight, celestial chords lift my soul to the Creator's healing light.

I walk along ancient stones feeling their inviting rhythm,
and listening to their playful dance upon my heart's sacred journey.

Stars excitingly await to be seen,
while angelic voices sway me into their harmonious song.

Aye, I trek along, opening my eyes to the new horizon.

Alas, my soul echoes in lyrics of praise,
gently humming the tune of the rising and peaceful Shalom.
