Much is hidden. Omer Day 27

Some is obvious to us.


Much is hidden.


We may think we see all.


At times we know we don't.


We crane our necks,


But must open our eyes,
our hearts,
our minds,


to what lies beneath


and what lies beyond.


What does it take
for us to see?


Today is Day 27, which is three weeks and six days of the Omer.
Today is Day 27, which is three weeks and six days of the journey from bondage to revelation.
