Psalms of my Soul

ספירת העומר

Kabbalistic Sephirat HaOmer day 30

Gevurah sh b'Hod

Wade in Splendor - day 30 Gevurah sh b'Hod

Gevurah holds me back 
from wading 
into the water lilies pond 
filled with Divine's delight,
blossom spread open
in Hod of splendor. 
Me, too, I am in awe
and grateful
of the Mystery
and want more.

I am in Hod/awe to see a most elegant swan and I swoon
and in Gevurah and humility I witness G*d's magnificent beauty
standing lake-side under the Brugmansia, Angel Trumpet tree. 
I hold back from getting close and
photograph from a long distance. 
Take a deep breath and be with Splendor.
