Water


water
parts to accept me
moves around me, envelopes me, draws me in
its tendrils of warmth
grabbing at me, beckoning me to a new life
everything and nothing
the water is charged, holy, set apart
the water is as it fell from the sky,
sat in the puddles,
flowed in the river,
gathered together for a sacred purpose
now I surrender myself to its depths
aware of the greatness
I splash in a puddle
I wade in a river
I stand in the downpour
I am still, facing Israel, I call out
I surrender myself to its depths
something has changed
the water is now mine,
I am set apart,
I am charged
I pray
Once again under this water
this space that now feels like home
I want to linger
I want to stretch out this moment
I want to emerge and live this life
I turn, I face my sister, she welcomes me
shalom
