In memory of A. J. Heschel ….by Anna Banasiak
I hear the yearning in your voice
Rashi’s commentaries are hidden in the rustle of trees
The stones are full of mystical light
Music seeps in the garden of sounds
The Psalms of David echo eternity
In the shadows of the past
I find the promise
The harp drowns out
The cry of war
