Earth Etude for Elul 22 - Help Me Be

by Carol C. Reiman
Help me be as steady as the oak, 
ocean, owl's gaze; 


Flexing as the bird's wing,
cattail in the breeze,
stream 'round the stone; 


Patient as the long daylight,
path to the horizon,
journey to my core;


Gliding back and forth,
inner, outer,
values mirroring my mien. 



As I tire, fresh start,
spiral ever out afar; 



Treasuring earth's teaching,
voicing its protection,
seeing to its keeping,
as I work to seek my own. 




Carol C. Reiman juggles making a living, caring for family, and keeping ties with communities of human and non-human species.
