B’reishit – Torah In Haiku

G-d speaks, things happen …
Light and dark, heaven and earth,    
The seas and dry land —
The sun and the moon …
Creatures of the air, sea, land …
Then man and woman —
Finally, Shabbat … 
A day set aside for rest …
Sanctified by G-d —
Genesis 1:3
G-d said. “Let there be light” and there was light.  
Genesis 2:3
G-d blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it, because on that day G-d had rested from all the work of creation.
