Resurrection of Torah

Crumbling letters litter 

The ground underfoot 

Truth trampled far

Too 

Long.

Words all but

Forgotten.

Words of life meeting 

The very dust of the earth,

Kissing the soles of the unworthy.

Polished and lofty, 

Perched far above,

Traditions of men 

Crown the meeting places,

Perched to judge the ancient words

Poised to reinterpret,

To mingle ashes with the

Words of life

To commit what was never 

dust 

To dust.

“Daughter of man, 

Can these crumbling words live?”

“Live, Sovereign Lord? 

What can Your words do 

But live?”

A heavenly sigh, too great

And marvelous for me…

Shaking the words about me

Exhaling delight

Contentment

Grief

Rejoicing

Life

“Who shall go?

And to who has the Arm of the Lord

Been revealed?”
And the Word Made Flesh 

Answered…

“SEND ME.”
