Joshua 19: In Writing
Walk, measure, name. What do I see when I see you turn, twist, hit, rise, drop, leave and then return?
Sarid, I call you, remnant of a dream. Sheva, satiation. Water welling. Where I swear, trust me, what is born, what will be born, what God will bear Molada, be my moledet, birthplace I fled, birthplace that calls. Be body, be belly, a place I can sleep, the navel I came from, to which I am linked. House of bread, house of sun, springs of red and white, water sharp as steel, sweet as fruit. Mishal, what I ask for. Amiad. Broad of shoulder, full of breath, An ever receding sky, afek, afek. Yavne’el, God will build. El’Tolad. Marala, Timnah, Idalah.Adama. I say, land, earth. Adam. Over there, at the hight, Ramah.
