shalom for the soul//a poem

to be seen and know to the end of your being
arms wide and heart beating and
lungs contract with frantic breathing and
waiting for disownment but not receiving
it, left confused and wild and slow and
known and known and known and known.

shalom
means peace and news that makes whole
to be known is shalom for the whole of your soul
to be known is to find home in shalom for your soul.


My book Waiting Spaces is out! You can order it here.
