Earth Etude for Elul 25 - Circling Home

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.
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
always turning
