by Rabbi Kaya Stern-Kaufman

Turning, always turning
To every turn, a season
To every season, a spirit
To every spirit, a soul
To every soul, a home
 
Ani l’dodi v’dodi li
I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine
Elul pours forth a call
 
Turn as the earth
Around your sacred truth,
Hold to your center
           but move from your place.
See
 from a new angle, Who You Are
And who you need to be
 
We are fiery emotions
We are waters of compassion
We are centered breath of life,
We are steady solid clay
 
An eternal breath wrapped in dust and light
Turning
always turning
