Why We Had to Leave Pharaoh

Western branches eastern roots –
tree of life.

Union sheleimut shalom
integrating dream –

every week a cosmic union.

Par’oh; to rend, to split —
the separator, dis-integrator.

Separate from the Other Side
that’s why

we had to leave Pharaoh —
to become one with ourselves.
