DANCING CIRCLES OF FORGIVENESS
by Emily Stern
Motzi Shabbos, Elul, Pre Rosh Hashana 2010

How Silly I am to ever ask my purpose as if I am a period at the end
of a sentence.
How curious I am for a mind to make mass, as if anything I could bring could mean something!
We circle around you in ways that could never end

You are the Reason.
Perfect feet

is my single foot. (re: angels) technicality becomes another domain.
What veil has been lifted
and not reflected
back the love of women more amazing than I am.

This is You showing your face

again
I am remembering why I made those choices or even why I let them tell me choice exists.
I know why my questions were not answered by yes or no’s.

Tsuvah is done for me.

The song is being played
stings almost
touching them instead of being
too untouchable.

I hope their love is understood by their husbands.

and I so simply singing.

“You are the Reason.”
