Omer Day 17-In Planting Time

                            Tiferet sh’b Tiferet*
In planting time bow to the seed,
bury it in the ground.
In blossom time inhale
this visible world’s deep earth fragrance

so you may enter the dark mystery
of glowing golden pollen turning
to red juicy, swollen seed sacks,
sweet peppers, burly potatoes,
luminous many layered onions.

In harvest time pluck, pick, and
dig the living fruits.  Welcome
every task as heart’s joy breathing,
love’s mouth uttering—

We are Your way,
We are Your way.
*Truth’s Compassion within Compassion’s Truth
