The Calling

The Calling


A world of silence
beckoned
Offering the solace
desperately needed
A calling
not to be ignored
Voluntarily acceded 


A place to offer
devotion of
both heart and soul
A gift of one’s being
Magnanimous 
Complete and whole


A journey of light
The path clear
and obstacle-free
To this house
of sanctuary
Now destined to be
