Beauty is Broken: How Prophets Come From the Narrow Place

I have seen the narrow place.
Where beauty is broken.
And redemption floats like Moshe in the basket along the River Fate.

Here, the tearful triumphs.
The destitute prospers.
And the beggar becomes the giver of the whole world.

Here, G-d’s words flow from the narrowness.
And the prophet is disguised as a human being.
Quietly creating the passageways that lead us to freedom’s mighty sea.
