Seeing – but not entering – thus

the Torah ends – two possibilities –

one of history – one of necessity –

each year – with dancing – God’s people

celebrate – the rain returns – a river

fresh and new – most stories have a

beginning and an end – not here – incomplete –

fragmentary – perhaps it’s like a wedding day –

promises made – each one in love –

a canopy of joy – all join the dance –

fulfilled – this is what the Lord says –

I remember the devotion of your youth –

how as a bride you loved me

and followed me through the wilderness

through a land not sown.
