Prayer is tempered by tragedy,
ringing like cymbals in the ears of G-d.
This kind of prayer
reverberates in the Heavens.
These are the prayers of the faithful,
while under duress in basements,
with the pounding of missiles,
and the screaming sirens.
Secure, while huddled underground,
in a place of refuge & prayer,
within our hearts, every minute, pulsing.
