Elul 22: End

I wonder what it will be like
when the baby is born.
That tiny, perfect person will only know
her mother.
Where does the rest go?

The dancer?
The student?
The lover?
The friend?

Then, she will be
both more
and less
because sometimes life
really is
that simple.

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.
