Earth Etude for Elul 11: Morning Prayer

by Judith Felsen

I awaken to a world

uncertain of its future

…Your will…???


I perceive an earth

in conflict and divided

…Divine design…???


I envision a tomorrow

wondering and doubtful

Heavenly plan…???


I imagine next year’s future

knowing it may not arrive

Exalted humbling…???


I experience uncertainty

life’s newness in unknowns

Celestial opening…???


I dissolve myself in guidance

fused in trust

Divine order… ???


I enroll as one

in service building earth anew

Majesty’s request…???


I become a vehicle of reconstruction

grateful in employment by mankind

My truth… … …
