A woman (אישה) – Poem by Shoshana Vegh (שושנה ויג)

 
Poem by Shoshana Vegh
 
 
A woman
 
A woman needs a huge tree
An embracing tree whose trunk and also its roots
Both in earth and in heaven.
A woman whose life force is
A thousand times larger than a person
Peace within her
And she has to take it
 
A woman is like a huge trunk tree
Its branches intertwine in all directions
Give her water
And she will bloom
She will live
 
 
A woman is the glorious pillar of our lives
She is beauty she is hope
She was created from man
She is not his rib
She is love
She is the creation
 
 
אישה
 
אִשָּׁה צְרִיכָה עֵץ עֲנָק
עֵץ מְחַבֵּק שֶׁגִּזְעוֹ וְגַם שָׁרָשָׁיו
גַּם בָּאֲדָמָה וְגַם בַּשָּׁמַיִם.
אִשָּׁה שֶׁכּוֹחַ הַחַיִּים שֶׁלָּהּ
גָּדוֹל פִּי אֶלֶף מוֹנִים מֵאָדָם
שַׁלְוָה בְּתוֹכָהּ
וְהִיא צְרִיכָה לָקַחַת אוֹתָהּ
 
אִשָּׁה הִיא כְּמוֹ גֶּזַע עָצוּם
עֲנָפֶיהָ מִשְׂתָּרְגִים לְכָל הַכִּוּוּנִים
תַּשְׁקֶה אוֹתָהּ בְּמַיִם
וְהִיא תִּפְרַח
הִיא תִּחְיֶה
 
אִשָּׁה הִיא הָעַמּוּד הַמְּפֹאָר שֶׁל חַיֵּינוּ
הִיא הַיֹּפִי הִיא הַתִּקְוָה
הִיא שֶׁנִּבְרְאָה מִן הָאָדָם
אֵינָהּ הַצֶּלַע שֶׁלּוֹ
הִיא הָאַהֲבָה
הִיא הַבְּרִיאָה
 
שושנה ויג
