There is a time for everything to rest in peace

27 Oct

There is a time for every thing to rest in peace.

There is a time. For everything to rest in peace 

       requires a certain time,

       a special pace

       to create suitable

       conditions that enable 

       rest in a grueling race.

There is a time for everything. To rest in peace

        that is true shalom,

        the entire world must

        share the stillness.

        It is a covenant at heart,

        a resilient bond of trust—that

there is a time for everything to rest. In peace

         things hold together,

         form a nest 

         for the human spirit,

          where the depths within it

          gather force to attest—Indeed

there is a time for everything to rest in peace—

        A time we know 

         Shabbat is real.

         Today our work is whole,

         our struggle has received the seal.

         The sense of things we now can toll: 

This is the time for everything to rest in peace.
