The stars gather,
The grains of sand shift,
Offshoot of the blessed arrives.
The beginning of redemption--
to belong to those following the Maker!
El Elohe Israel
A passage opened that life below
might join flesh above.
Brief respite, but
Peace is disturbed.
Violence, death, fear.
A renewed promise to the Maker.
(The terebinth will hide the trespass)
The sands are ever shifting.
