A Single Spark

person standing in field in the dark holding a spark up to the sky

In the darkness
Complete and unadorned
A single spark
Leapt into existence

Life and being
Were born in that moment
As Divine Creation
Entered the universe
 
Wrapped in a cloak
Of mystery and questions
She began Her descent
With purpose and direction
 
Carrying the promise
Of Ruakh and Neshamah
She blazes a pathway
For Her children to follow
 
Her name is Shekhinah
And She brings renewal
As Her cloak falls away
Our souls can find light
