“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.” -Albert Einstein

I spent the desert of my childhood
Seeking water,
Finding refuge only in the Light of Stars
And moon,
My shelter from sweltering sun

From what harshness of my cactus youth
Did a sabra flower bloom?

Some say the trick to finding is
Being Found, yet
Walking across this narrow bridge
I hear a Fly buzz, then
Around my head

It answers to the name of
Persistence!

Each step brings me closer to the Place
Abounding of water,
Knowing I’ve been parched so long
I see Blue waves,
and stumble forward

My oasis, only Hashem,
My restoration, my rock
