When you rest your head
Upon a pillow of stone,
Attend to your dreams.

Do we not each long for love?
Esau's anguished plea.

Chaye Sarah 5773

Because he looked up,
Isaac beheld his future
And his heart was full. 

Vayera 5773

Although I have tried--
The boy, the man and the ram
Still fill me with dread. 

Lech L'cha 5773

When he heard the call,
Avram must have been crazy.
Still we honor him.

Be sure to think through--
When you choose to build towers--
What if they should fall?

In much the same way,
You and I create our lives
With voice, breath and light.
