Baruch She’emar

Who knows what worlds might spring from a single word?

And who knows what worlds might collapse?

Therefore, let Your words come to me.

Let them well lup in praise and frustration.

Let them overwhelm the page, my heart, my eyes.

Let them wash away any undue pride or fear.

Let them be my wings, carrying me ever higher;

Farther from a sense of the ground, yet nearer to true groundedness.

Let my words create as You create–

Who spoke and the world was.

  1. What beautiful words — all of them. i searched Wikipedia for the title of this poem and feel so blessed to read it and share it. Feel gratitude to know the seven aspects of God too….i know your words create peace, love and sweet joy in my heart. So i share them back with you…please accept and smile. πŸ™‚

    1. I accept with hushed delight…knowing you journey as I do in the human sense of unknowing…hands and heart open to the One…blessings to you, my sweet friend.

    1. Thank you, sweet friend! Rosh HaShanah- head of the year- is celebrated the eve of the day…so Sunday, Sept 9 this year, and continues for two days. We eat apples dipped in honey to symbolize hopes for a good and sweet year, and foods which are round remind us of the cycle of time, and of our lives. Wishing you sweetness and joy today and always…so grateful and blessed to know you, beloved friend! *smiling heart*

      1. i LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to learn of these beautiful traditions from you. Feels like we are one heart — oooh Apples dipped in honey…yum…We have an unusual New Year custom – not all over India, in some parts – we eat foods that are sweet, sour, bitter, tart…all different tastes to remind ourselves that the year ahead will bring all types of experiences and we have to accept all as part of the play of life. Thank you for your sweet wishes! πŸ™‚
