[O.C.T.O.B.E.R. V-3] Judgment

A few days ago, when I was clearing out my e-mail, I was reading several blog posts. One of them which stuck out to me was a quatern. Given that the High Holidays are a time of beautiful and haunting poetry, I want to try a quatern for ראש השנה (Rosh Hashanah). Here goes nothing!

Day of judgment: it’s upon us!

No, the world is not ending

Rather, it’s beginning anew

Opportunity to reflect

 

Not the heavenly court for the

Day of judgment: it’s upon us!

What went well the last lunar year?

What could be improved for next year?

 

 

Imagery: fully prostrated.

How do you relate to others?

Day of judgment: it’s upon us!

Judgment may be reciprocal.

 

Even the best people have flaws

But acknowledgment of them can

Repair one’s tattered thoughts. Here’s the

Day of judgment: it’s upon us!

===========================================

Kol Nidrei/Yom Kippur: 8 days

End of the Ad-Hominems: 36 days

Lincoln: 78 days
