A human being is like the rod Moses held, or the words
Jesus said, the outer just
a piece of wood or mouth sounds from a country dialect.
But the inner can divide
the green ocean and make the dead sit up and smile. You
see far-off tents of an
encampment: you go closer. There's a dust shape, someone
walking. Closer. Inside
that, a man, bright eyes and strength of presence. When
Moses returns from the
wilderness where he goes alone, Sinai begins to dance!
