Parsha Poem for Maaseh



It’s time that we look back upon,
The places where we’ve been,
The lessons that we’ve learned from them,
The sparks that hid therein.

First we came to Midbar Sin,
Then reached Midbar Sin-ai,
And the journey ends in Midbar Tzin,
They sound similar, but why?

Does each wilderness have what to teach,
From a slightly different frame?
Or is it we who’ve been transformed,
So the lessons seem to change?
