Ancient Building

Of Abraham


Enfolded in black

Open to the heavens

Not worshiped

Direction of unity

Sacred space


Not empty

Holding energy

Thoughts, prayers


Faithful of the nations

Come to fill the space

Undulating circular patterns

Equalized in white cloth


Clean of heart


Zamzam healed

Journey of a lifetime

Soon fulfilled

Spiritual fulfillment

Eternally full

Sacred space of the soul


Sacred marble floors

Paving the way



Nations souls

To see the face of God.
