Hadith Oliyankara Juma Masjid

Hadith Oliyankara Juma Masjid (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Unceasing their clarion call
Every morn, every dawn
Like the azan*

Trusting not the human way
Which tends to say
Tomorrow, not today

Asking, pleading, urging
Us to come away
To bless and thank and pray

As at nightfall once again
With that chorus in the sky
Which helps us stand in reverence
For all the blessings we enjoy.
