Jerusalem at night.


Speechless the sterling

stars sparkle from

the velvety midnight blue.

Speechless the moon

burns a silver circle into

the dark sky. Speechless the city

casts its light randomly

into the night,

announcing safe harbor

to the weary soul seeking

home. Silently I watch

with reverence, feeling

small yet significant

in all of this. My

heart fills with

thought, my lips

with speech, my

pen moves in praise.
