Feeling the eggshell

Of my existence.

Moments come,

Are swept away.

Love and life

Are swept away.

Friendships I cherish,

Work I achieve,

My Dreams and my youth

Are all swept away.

Meanwhile my sukkah stands


and resolute

amid rain,

despite wind,


to welcome guests,

to shelter travelers,

students, the hungry,

to boldly prove
