this is the calm before the storm,
for those who take refuge in the makom,
while sheltering in place, reflecting
upon what is essential in life.
the afterglow of sanctity will strengthen
all, who look towards shomayim (heaven)
in anticipation of the final call, the Geulah –
when the shofar will resound across the world.
Redemption is at hand: Moshiach awaits,
the moment of revelation will arrive;
his reign from Jerusalem will stretch all
around this Planet, from the east to the west.
