Thank you for this lovely post, Eve, and for yesterday's post, too -- I'm looking so forward to your continuing explorations of these texts (scripture and poetry both) in days to come.

In one of my own poems, a few years ago, I riffed off of the similar sounds in dam (blood) and damut (image) to suggest that in being made in the divine image, we are "chips off the God block," reflections and refractions of the divine image as DNA makes a child a reflection and refraction of its parents. There's no etymological connection between dam and damut, but aurally there's a link, and the wordplay took me somewhere interesting, I think.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
