Earth Etude for Elul 22 – Help Me Be

by Carol C. Reiman

 

May I be as steady as the oak,

ocean, owl’s gaze;

Carol 1

 

Flexing as the bird’s wing,
cattail in the breeze,
stream around the stone;

Carol 2

 

Patient as the long daylight,
path to the horizon,
journey to my core;

Carol 3

 

Gliding back and forth,
Inner, outer,
values mirroring my mien.

Carol 4

 

As I tire, fresh start,

spiral ever out afar;

Carol 5

 

Treasuring earth’s teaching;
voicing its protection;
seeing to its keeping,
as I work to seek my own.

Carol 6
