Dot... Letter... Word...
by Rav Avraham Yitzchak Kook
Every authentic creation
From two places at the same time:
From the noble high source
In the root of the soul
In the secret treasury of its power,
And from the source of the material character
In the darkness of its feelings.
These abysses call to each other
And when their lines meet,
A light of life,
A light of being,
A light of wisdom,
A light of song,
A light of existence
Emerges and flashes.
And the indigo, the sea, the sky and the sapphire
Unite in the splendid beauty of their revelation
For the joy of the redeemed,
Who will come to Zion with singing and joy forever.
Shemonah Kevatzim 8:252
