Dark Light

Where was I    
A child of light now living in darkness
In the world but not of the world    
When in the beginning He compassed the face of the depths    
There, then, were four faces    
Four, a foundation or Daleth, a portal    
Four points which bore the circle    
The Torah, face over the deep    
Throne of God, face over the waters    
The patriarchs, the face over Rakia    
The temple, face over the earth    
Ah, the depths - bi'ur      
Of the well - be'er      
Of Miriam    
Levels and layers    
Line upon line    
I seek in the darkness    
For clouds and darkness are round about him    
Pavilions  of darkness round about him    
Dark waters  
And thick clouds of the skies  
He knows the place of the stones of darkness    
As I draw forth from the dark light at the well of Miriam    
The well of Miriam created of God in the twilight    
Between the first and second day    
The two faces of the sea      
As a sea like glass before His throne  
And as a sea which borders his footstool  
Mem, m a triangle in archaic Aramaic    
Mem and mem for depths and waters    
Mem and mem for Miriam    
Triangle and triangle overlaid    
The hexagon centered, the Magen Miriam    
Shield within star  
Darkness shall not overcome me 
For what is "In the beginning"      
Bereshit or Bat Reshit    
"First daughter"    
Wisdom shall have her way    
So let there be light
