#blogElul 8: Hear
#blogElul 10: Count

#blogElul 9: See


Being seen wholly
is more intimate
than any embrace.

Being known
beyond any pretense,
any veil I wear.

Gift beyond measure:
I don't have to hide
from your loving eyes.


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.
