Hebrew

Shlomi (שלומי)

שְׁלוֹמִי קָשׁוּר בְּחוּט
אֶל שְׁלוֹמךָ.
וְהַחַגִּים הָאֲהוּבִים
וּתְקוּפוֹת הַשָּׁנָה הַנִּפְלָאוֹת
עִם אוֹצַר הָרֵיחוֹת, הַפְּרָחִים,
הַפְּרִי, הֶעָלִים וְהָרוּחוֹת,
וְעִם הָעֲרָפֶל וְהַמָּטָר,
הַשֶּׁלֶג הַפִּתְאוֹמִי
וְהַטַּל,
תְּלוּיִים עַל חוּט הַכְּמִיהָה.
אֲנִי וְאֲתָּה וְהַשַּׁבָּת.
אֲנִי וְאֲתָּה וְחַיֵּינוּ
בַּגִלְגּוּל הַקּוֹדֵם.
אֲנִי וְאֲתָּה
וְהַשֶׁקֶר.
וְהַפַּחַד.
וְהַקְּרָעִים.
אֲנִי וְאֲתָּה
וּבוֹרֵא הַשָּׁמַיִם שֶׁאֵין לָהֶם
חוֹף.
אֲנִי וְאֲתָּה
וְהַחִידָה.
אֲנִי וְאֲתָּה
וְהַמָּוֶת.

My Peace

My peace is tied with thread
to yours.
 
And the holidays we love,
the wondrous seasons of the year
with their treasure of fragrance, the flowers,
the fruit, the leaves and the winds,
with the mists and the rains,
the unforeseen snows,
and the dew,
hung on the thread of yearning.
 
Me and you and Shabbat.
Me and you and our lives
in our last incarnation.
Me and you
and the lie.
And the fear.
And the rifts.
Me and you
and the creator of the heavens without any
shore.
Me and you
and the mystery.
Me and you
and death.
 
The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable. (Prov 25:3 KJV)
