קֹדֶשׁ Qodesh, an exploratory definition of the Sacred

vulnerable    uninvited    unaware    surprised    unprepared    strange
it was a moment, brief —
briefly —
impact.
a second, split second
a saintly time    a split sanctification
one moment of awareness
; this one time
once I saw everything    you came uninvited    you surprised me
I remember this    where I see everything
listening?
hear    heard    I heard you    I can hear you
found    you found me
for once not afraid    not afraid
(and) strangely calm    calm    it was so peaceful
my answer
your answer
my answer, your answer
Eben ha-`ezer
a shooting star    (out of) those calm stars
distinct    how distinct
apparent    appearance
apparent, appearance
secret bridge    secret garden    secret waterfall
time left    time dispersed
dwelled    I dwelled    we dwelled
safely exposed
beneath it all
only you and I know     only we know
escape    escaped    I escaped    we escaped
, our defense
my shelter    quickly, shelter    brief shelter
in this place
the only moment we were alone    a moment of silence    for once silence
take a breath    when I breathed    I could breathe    I can breathe
we were breathing    we breathed    one breath
inhale    inhale, exhale //
this moment    that one moment
when we were alone    a breath alone    my lungs work
: I am oxygen    I am air
I am the rush    (I am) the flood
flooding    everything flooding
— you see?
I see everything, I see nothing    I hear everything, I hear nothing
I feel everything, I feel nothing
(for) I am timeless
