Songs From The Diaspora is a poetry blog focusing on the weekly Torah portion, or other Jewish sources.

Parashat Vayeitzei

His ear to an Altar

of stones

The dreamer conceives

A gathering of stars and dust

Numerous, beyond compare

Next to him, the voices of his wives,

yet unknown

The sweetness of children bourne across

Their knees

The ragged wool of his flocks outside the tent

In the cool shelter of morning

He is restored

And a world unfurls

As oil across stone
