Noticing the breath
inhale, exhale, cool and warm
Tzimtzum over and over
Thanks to The Velveteen Rabbi for alerting me that http://wordxwordfestival.com/ is having a 30 poems in 30 days contest. (I don't think there are prizes but they do publish poems on their website, if you submit them.) I have subscribed to http://3030poetry.com/ for the daily prompts and have begun! I can't guarantee I will write a poem a day but I like the idea so I got started with this haiku on the prompt "From Start to Finish".
This poem was inspired by the meditation practice I have begun since Stu and I attended the Or HaLev and Awakened Heart Project silent meditation retreat at Kibbutz Hannaton.
Tziporah Laila - Singer in the Dark
I have been writing poetry since I could put a pen to paper and more recently, my poems have taken the form of prayers and blessings.
