At Kineret….

You have a name of a lake and you are the Sea of Galilee
You are the queen of the Golan Heights with no crown
Your beautiful eyes like the lake
you are hot like the burning sun
You are sunrise and sunset not clear not understandable
Some times you make us stronger some times weaker
You are an abundance of contrasts
you are the Red Sea and the Sea of Galilee

You are the Sea of Galilee by name
and for man kind You are beautiful like the rest of Israel
Unique noisy quiet and stormy
you are the magnificent Sea of Galilee for ever

You have a name of a lake
you are small and wild as well like Israel
Your soft face bring us closer and away from you
it is hard with you and without
Fragile empowers not giving in uncontrollable
Some times you give a generously and some times you don't know us
You are an abundance of contrasts
you are beautiful and no one else is like you

You are the Sea of Galilee.............
