When light is diminished in this world,
we seek the scroll of Esther unfurled,
to bring to light what remains hidden,
drawing close to G-d, even when not bidden.
When darkness seems to prevail,
we find hope in Mordechai’s tale,
of triumph, in the battle of us and them,
the tides were turned in our favor by H’Shem.
The light of truth shone bright,
when Haman’s plan was revealed in full site,
to King Ahasuerus at Esther’s feast,
when all the coincidences came into place.
Today, we celebrate yesterday’s victory,
steadfast in prayer in the morning early,
awaiting the light that appears at dawn,
when the L-RD will right all that is wrong.
Like colors in a mystical kaleidoscope,
blue and yellow blend with hope,
when all of the colors melt into one,
in expectation of the rising sun.
