G-d, (wo)Man, One

Sitting,
mmmmmmmmmmmmmSurrounded, encircled in an ambiguous hug.
mmmmmmmmmmmmmFeeling, knowing, floating in glorified clouds.
mmmmmmmmmmmmmStill, some can stand the non-understandable;
You never could.
mmmmmmmmmmmmmBut when I sit in here I don’t have to.
mmmmmmmmmmmmmNow the rain falls:
mmmmmmmmmmmmmIt takes some time for it to seep through;
But when it does,
mmmmmmmmmmmmmAnd the drops are zooming by me,
mmmmmmmmmmmmmMAGNIFIED,
mmmmmmmmmmmmmLike everything caught in a vortex with only me and,
You, the only one,
mmmmmmmmmmmmmSomehow rooted in place –
mmmmmmmmmmmmmEven the flying objects seem to bounce off,
mmmmmmmmmmmmmNot leaving so much as a streak.
Wonderful.

you can read this post three ways:

1. only the left column - only G-d.

2. only the right column - only wo/man.

3. both together - one.

(some poetic license [to kill?])

A beautiful piece Jake. I like the incorporation of the Sukkoth motif and its expression through soggy weather. What a brilliant way of seeing eating out in the rain...
