deep blue sky with cloud in white, light pink, darker pink, and purple
Our bodies,
The offering
Of animal blood
And bone
And skin,
Singing in that
Hallelujah chorus 
As spices and incense 
Arise to seed
The Cloud
Descending onto
Our bed.
Mouths open
To share
The hush.
Aleph: The silence before the beginning.
Aleph: Our humility as we worship all of that.
