Baruch atah Adonai

I am woman,

I am one 

of these earthly scented things 

a suckling being

who sucks sunshine from Eden

an hourglass holding moments 

in a seashell

a sea-swell of trees and

flowers and scattered dandelions 

and dust

I am a mint scented lioness 

who walks through jaded forests

yet cries in the middle of the night

to be held

a wild wavy woman 

who sometimes 

flings about on frothing waves

but is gathered 

to the bosom of Yah

like flowers

Blessed are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the Universe, who is good and causes good.
