It Comes as No Surprise

It Comes as No Surprise

That outside the 
Land of giants
Everything again
Feels so small.

If after 9 months
It took me
Almost a decade 
To settle,

Is it really a shock 
That I'd return
With my head again 
In those clouds?

No longer breathing
Its air, bathing 
In Its water,

No longer standing
On Its earth, warm
From Its fire.

It's all
To be expected,
Yet painful
All the same.


PS: Israel has four main holy cities:Jerusalem (fire), Hebron (earth), Tiberias (water) and Tsfat (air)
