Earth Etude for 14 Elul


 Elul Greening
by Judith Feinstein

Have we done the reparation
so to take the consolation
and digest it all and well?
Have we  psalms we want to hear
releasing some for other's ears
while disregarding somber prohets' words? 
Can we see Akiva's vision, crumbling Temple fox is running as a sign 
Moschaiach's coming or do we yet deny our state?
Do we choose to not attend to
what this month we must amends do
so that we are then released
from martyr's fate at our own hands.
We do not need  be in danger
as we cannot be a stranger
to our laws and ethics
taught to clear our minds our selves and souls. 
We can aid Moschiach coming
as we heal ourselves from stumbling
while we clear our air and water
and our lands from their decay.
Our earth,Your Temple  tilling,
with kavanah we are willing
to correct the wrongs we've found. 
Close to soil we work with bittel 
our open hearts see   great and little
ways in prayer and joy to heal our home.
We sing in joining all among us
working, tilling all the ruckus
we are greening for Moshiach with our King now in the fields.
We are happy ever greener
Elul's days are ever cleaner
all life and living ever dearer
clearing for Moschaich's nearer.
As we return our earth to Eden,
Hashem's fields with peace  reseeded
reflect teshuvah practiced now.
We are grateful for reflection
deep with care and introspection
we beg release from broken vows.
Tilling as we learn the lessons
happy with forgiveness' blessings
we are in Adamah's Eden 
choosing once again for consolation of atonement, 
plowing fields with Your forgiveness 
greening Eden this Elul 
returning to the garden of Your love.
