Can A Desert Speak?

Desert – Midbar – מדב

Please note that the letters of the word midbar מדבר
are also the letters of the verb medaber, in Hebrew it means to speak, and that is to imply that in the driest situations in life, when we feel alone, with no surrounding or friends, where there is no flower, tree or a bird, we are still capable to hear the divinity speaking to us.
