#blogElul 15: Change


You remind me
not to fear change.

Change is like breathing:
without it, death

(itself a change
I can't yet understand.)

You remind me
what stays the same:

roots to ground me,
hope to uplift me,

my tender heart,
my love for you.

I'm participating again this year in #blogElul, an internet-wide carnival of themed posts aimed at waking the heart and soul before the Days of Awe. (Organized by Ima Bima.) Read #blogElul posts via the Elul tag; last year's posts are now available in print and e-book form as See Me: Elul poems.
