#blogElul 6: Believe
Balancing judgment with love

#blogElul 7: Choose

BlogElul 2016
To think of you when I wake
and as I close my eyes.

To orient myself toward you
like a flower toward the sun.

To steer by your promises
steadfast as the stars.

To trust that I bring you joy,
rejoice at your trust in me.


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; you might also enjoy my collection of Elul poems which arose out of #blogElul a few years ago, now available in print and e-book form as See Me: Elul poems.
