The Torah In Haiku: Noach

The sky falls to earth
G-d’s destructive flood begins
Creation reversed

Genesis 1:7-8: “G-d made the expanse, and it separated the water which was below the expanse from the water which was above the expanse. And it was so.”

From Genesis 7:11: “On that day all the fountains of the great deep burst apart, and the floodgates of the sky broke open.”
