Psalms of My Soul

G*d Loves Me

Outlining a radiant heart 
to fill with intense red and purple
feels exciting to me. 

Freely splashing water
and wildly brushing layers of color onto silk
is satisfying for me. 

A frosting of salty tears 
add surprise and a magical marbling finale. 

With a bit of a broken heart,
I dance on silk, knowing
G*d loves me.

- Joy Krauthammer

Poem for LEV HEART ART was published in Kol ALEPH, online journal.

"This lovely bit of poetry by Joy Krauthammer inspired us when we had a long day at the office!"

(Art Heart was inadvertantly forgotten.)
May the refinement work of cosmic cleansing that I do on myself during the 49 days of Kabbalistically Counting the Sephirat HaOmer help me to mamash/truly be who I am, and need to become. I desire to delete klipot/husks (negative influences) and again ready myself for Shavuot by strengthening, elevating and perfecting my midot/character traits.
