a quiet minyan [#poem]

a quiet minyan
© Rabbi Menachem Creditor

power quietly coursing
through this quiet minyan
suddenly I am aware

wind itself a whisper
loss and life and love
all mixed in fragrant air

nowhere else calls
for in this fleeting moment
everywhere, everything, everyone
is right here
