Rabbi Rami M. Shapiro wrote this poem about life and death:
a twisted vine sharing a single root
A water bright green
stretching to top a twisted yellow
only to wither itself
as another green unfolds overhead.
One leaf atop another
yet under the next,
a vibrant tapestry of arcs and falls
all in the act of becoming.
Death is the passing of life
And life is the stringing together of so many little passings.
