tisha b'av

by Yaakov Levy


i can smell
   the smoke

2,000 years  later

all   of   jerusalem

    in  flames

our  hearts

  still  burning

in   exile

even in israel

our   souls,

exiled   from

the Shechinah,

weep   and

  mourn

for   our

Home.

 

c. 7/19/10 yl

"Home" Har Habayit, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem
"Shechinah", the Divine Presence
