How do we complete the difficult task?
We contain our eagerness.
We remember our strength.
We constantly remember the strength
in the center of our strength—
the way in the space
of two wet, warm late April days, magnolia’s
swollen pink buds open
into creamy blossoms
as she offers her beauties,
one by one to the dangerous sky.
Omer Day 9, Gevurah she b’Gevurah,
