The Stones

They sparkle and glow,
touched by the starry night sky.

 

The stones of the Kotel stand before me,
reaching up, in their effort to surround our holiest ground-
The ground of the Beis HaMikdash,
which will soon take its appointed place.

 

Millions stream here throughout the year,
drawn to the magnificent presence-

 

The presence of something not tangible,
but so real and so true.

Who knew?

 

Who knew I would get the chance-
the chance to spend a year in this city.
A year amongst the most special people and places.

 

No words could possibly express,
My feelings so intense.

 

All I can say is,
G-d, you have given me a treasure.
