Is like loosely hanging threads,
Easily fraying from the main cloth,
While in acts of piety we learn to understand that
Every instant is like a thread
Raveling out of eternity to form a delicate tassel.
We must not cast off the threads
But weave them into the design of an eternal fabric.
Each day points to eternity;
The fate of all time depends upon a single moment.
Weekday morning siddur
If they break away, can they not return?
The stork in the sky knows when to migrate,
the dove and the swallow know the season of return.
What human instinct knows the time to turn back?
What cue sparks the conscience of the soul?
We pray to sense the day anew,
Attuned to the call of sacred living.
Jeremiah 8:4,7 adaptation
