Elul 8: Hear

Still
When I hear that
ding dong ding dong
my heart reels and dives
into my stomach
and I almost remember
a time before
we found each other.

 

This poem is in a series written during Elul, the Jewish month of reflection and repentance leading up to the Jewish New Year and Day of Atonement. The project is inspired by Rabbi Phyllis Anna Somer, @imabima. More info on her blog Ima on (and off) the Bima.
