I based this collection on the Kabbalistic tradition that we can understand ourselves and our world by meditating on seven aspect of our seven conscious emotions, or sephirot. Following that path, I wrote a poem on each of those nuanced emotions, which correspond to each day of the Omer. The poems are a creative and emotional response to these meditations and not meant to be an explanation. For me, it was a remarkable journey as I experienced the world through 49 different emotional filters. While the inspiration was mystical and spiritual, the poems are grounded in the day-to-day. I hope you enjoy the poems and realize that our souls can connect with the Godliness of our world in many unexpected ways.
