pillar of smoke, pillar of fire

say goodbye to the mountain
goodbye to the warm and
trembling earth gather it all up the
tent poles the utensils the
hangings the posts the pots the pans the
tent pegs tomorrow we leave for the
wilderness don’t plan don’t think don’t
hesitate just dive deep and burn up your deepest
most unblemished yearning the pillars of
smoke and fire billowing forth from the altar will
guide you throughout all
your journeys

(Exodus 39:39-40, 40:36-38)
