Slechot

in this season of reckoning
my heart’s aims
and its marks missed

with so many recollections
of my misdeeds
and missed opportunities

in repetitions
of my errors

in my tears
and deepest longing

I
wish only to
empty
my-
self

And wait

    1. Thank you, sweet Krishnapriya…your company is always appreciated. Each year’s “returning” to “the land of Soul” tugs differently…I suppose because I am different each year. But I already feel the intenseness coming on, the vulnerability, welling of tears…I pray my heart will open to a brighter, truer Song…that I will have the courage to sing. Blessings and love to you, my sweet friend!

      1. What does this time mean for you? Is it a time for introspection of the entire year – i mean the custom and tradition? I have heard from a spiritual teacher that tears for God are a song of the soul. So you are singing already. 🙂 And may you be blessed to sing in many wondrous tunes and dance with the Source of all music, love and beauty. My prayer for you. 🙂

    1. Yes, you are so right, my sweet Pari, thank you for understanding…and some years the feelings and meaning hit especially hard.Blessings and love to you!
