Poem for Adar & Purim: Light and Dark
New poem for Adar exploring the distinctions that help us understand holiness, through Chava & Lilith and Esther & Vashti
Chava and Lilith, two sides of the same coin
Chava, mother of all living things
Lilith, mother of passion and creativity
That makes life worth living.
One without the other is pointless
Light and dark
Neither inherently good nor bad
Each needed to know the other.
Art doesn’t exist without life,
But life must come first
Vashti, wild and inspiring
But, Esther, is needed to give life.
No Esther, without Vashti nor Vashti without Esther
Between light and dark
We understand the sacred
