Shabbat-August 30, 2013

Shabbat Day

Skies of other worlds

In the blue-bright air,

Sides of houses

Edge eternity.

Clay-red roofs

Where pigeons – mincing – walk,

Fly the doves – the whir and flutter

Of their soaring wings.

Soundless the yellow butterfly

At its play.

Winds lift white clouds

And sift the sand

From earth-bound stones -

Exalted the light

Of this dazzling Day,

Yet strangely close to home.

-Dobra Levitt

Shabbat Shalom!

, earth-bound stones.
