All That Glass–by Gertrud J. Lind

Kristallnacht 1938
Kristallnacht 1938

All that glass

shattered one long ago November night,
can never ever be swept away.

Splinters are pushing into the light of day,
still sharp on all sides.

When sunshine hits these broken pieces,
millions of yahrzeit lights illumine the loss,

while fragments of the rainbow flicker with hope
and the promise of Tikkun Olam.
