Before G-d made me, what was I? And how did I arise in His longing? Was I a dash, a smudge, a ray within the sun?
When did you hide
the smoldering embers of your soul
in the stifling closet of propriety?
Was it when you tasted
the pride of peer embrace,
that cast you in a less than suitable space,
of sterile proportions?

she can only admire
the foliage from afar
the vibrant images caught
in so many pictures

constantly striving to capture the next . . .
Like the turning colors of the leaves
I accept my seasons;
Knowing G-d gave me Joy, challenges
All for His perfect reasons.

When I was a potter,
some pots needed orphanages,
whether birthed or aborted, a mistake.
Too raw, I recycled them into
mud once more, back to the earth.
Her tears quench the soil her children once tilled Along the border, their voices now stilled, Her voice rises highest...
Adulate endless yearnings like a "roaring fire"
Bolster the emblem of the highest virtue
Create the high possibilities for the neshama
I turned inward to gaze at my own majestic soul beauty. Embedded in my DNA is the homing device that leads me inward and upward to my own personal destiny...
