High Holy Days Journey with Amichai Lau-Lavie: 40 ways in 40 days to find your focus
A poem for the 28th day of preparations, this focus-finding journey to at-one-ment, on the last day of Summer, just 2 days before the New Year begins.
It is your turn now
It is your turn now, you waited, you were patient.
The time has come, for us to polish you.
We will transform your inner pearl into a house of fire.
You’re a gold mine. Did you know that, hidden in the dirt of the earth?
It is your turn now, to be placed in fire.
Let us cremate your impurities.

Intention: make time and space in my life for the type of direct inspiration that poetry, in all its forms, provides, this coming year.
