The Torah’s Feet October 6, 2010

silent shuls but sukkahs filled
one last wave of the species as
Hoshanah Rabbah brings closure
to the homes Hashem willed

parchment rolled
inanimate scrolls
ink and hide hidden
under velvet and gold

men start circling
wooden doors open
dancing and drumming
and circles of singing

whats this? are you seeing?
the parchment moves
up and down and around and around
the Torah starts living

once a year it happens
hide and ink come to life
and Jews forget strife
for the sake of these actions

these yidden all meet
at the shul to dance and
sing and give for once
the Torah some feet
