dust moment

I heard a teaching last evening
most of which I had already understood
for whatever reason
what I heard last night
became alive and very very real

during the days
when the feet that had yet to be pierced
walked the dust of this earth
it was the highest goal
for young boys
to be chosen to follow a rabbi

some were
some were not

it was some of these rejected ones
that the Rabbi chose

the teachings of a rabbi were called his yoke
but it is only one Rabbi who says His yoke was easy

the chosen ones would follow their rabbi everywhere

the benediction last evening was

may you forever be covered in the dust of your Rabbi
