The adhan echoed loud,
Into the clear blue skies,
As the horizon greeted the call,
To prayer went everyone,
To seek guidance,
And inner peace,
Within the confines,
Of the holy mosque,
That held serenity,
For all the worshippers.

I could feel the serenity in your words. This is the reason I like going to a Catholic church, because I like the solemnity of prayer and the peace of listening to God, rather than shouting and praising aloud, I find I can connect with God through my silence and meditation of the Rosary. Thank you for this peice and for showing, that which I already knew, that humans have the need for that serenity which prayer gives, whether in church, mosque or temple.
