Beauty, Courage, Home, Judaism, Love, Miracles


I miss the front bench
with no one else there
just me and God
in my own sacred space.
I loved the colors
dancing in the sunlight,
the tree, the lovers
under a starry sky,
the miraculous parting
of an ancient sea.
The fiery flames
hidden behind iridescence,
and above,
a mosaic of blues
violets purple crystal
only seen by those
with the courage
to sit up front
and be close.

    1. Thanks! This was written for my temple, which has really incredible stained glass windows (Moses parting the sea, Adam and Eve, the burning bush, etc.). It’s lovely being in that space.
