Noah: Teivah

close up of brown-skinned woman's hands holding lit sparkler, her face blurred in the background, curly brown hair swept to the side by breeze
For every one
Of life’s torrential floods,
There is a teivah,
An ark 
A container of words.
And in every word,
The Holy breath of letters.
And by breath of every letter, 
There comes an opening.
And through every opening,
A Zohar:
A light.
And by way of light,
The klal of Yisrael,
Is offered 
The illumination of life;
A life of illumination.
