Hundred of years ago

in candle lit rooms

Rabbis argued

on the rules of Judaism

and on the words

of the Torah.

These arguments

come to life


in the Beit Midrash

through ribbons

of pinks

and yellows

and greens

and blues

and through sing-song voices

that might make us smile

just a tiny bit.

But each day,

the sun goes down

and the echoes fade

at least until tomorrow

and I always wonder

how I will make my mark.
