Jerusalem's joy

After Nehemiah 10-12

Celebrating a wall
was not about brick
and stone and mortar
and barriers; it was
about return, coming
together, identity, safety
in the hands protecting us.
The noise went up, rising
in a cacophony of sound,
a union of music and voice
soaring upward toward
the hands wrapped
around the city, hands
wrapped around

the hearts.
