The foaming, frothing sea, gleams in the light cast upon us, safe on the lee of the Angel, standing fast against the army of Mitzraim. Behind me, towers the pillar of cloud, obscuring the bowers where the enemy is shrouded in the darkness of night. There is only one way for us to pursue, inContinue reading “Divine Pillar”
Step back, in your soul;in your heart, reach out towards the far corners of the earth.Know, that I will be with you there.I Shall Be Who I Shall Be. In all your nisyanos,I will be within the midst,to comfort you in the stormsof a life, seemingly gone wrong. Know that all shall beas all isContinue reading “We Will Be”
Broken unity, echoes across time, down through the ages, as darkness covers this world; we yearn for reconciliation. As the day draws near, our tears become crystal clear, for the redemption is at hand, and all across the land, the fissures of the earth are healed, as the names of the faithful are sealed, inContinue reading “Seek the Light”
We will rise from the ashes,as we have always done,across the generations.When the vitriolic verbosityhas reached its peak, andspills over into persecution,we will not bow to pressure.

And, who will blink an eye, as I rest my soul, sheltered in my personal space, away from the tumult and toil of the world outside here? Free from responding to my only online critique, whose comments remain inContinue reading “Resting Potential”
An extreme shift. A return to center is nowhere in sight. No balancing act to bring us back from careening too far. ~~~~~ ~~~~~ I will transcend the divide, and keep my eyes on the prize Above, while my feet are placed firmly on the ground.
I stand, amidst controversy, thrive amongst subtleties, arrange my life accordingly to the truths that stand on their own. Standing room only in Heaven, when the righteous, downtrodden, and marginalized; misunderstood, voiceless, and persecuted will enter into their glory. Will you stand with me?
Called, in one moment of divine inspiration, by the One who reaches down from seventh heaven, with His right hand, to guide the contrite of heart to safe shores, where rest may be found from the tumults of life that endanger the soul, bringing light to those bound in the darkness of the world, unableContinue reading “Called”
