Omer Day 36-To deeply love

                            Chesed sh’b Yesod*
To deeply love, to be loved deeply—
so often we must speak in code
trusting our kind words to be
brick by brick, foundation stone
by stone—the unmoving sacred
floor, root and source
of all our joy—a double mirror
reflecting more than double glory

as I sit here puzzling
over all the hurts of all we love,
all the unexpected kindnesses,
the tangled ways that all
that was keeps turning
turning to what
is becoming
         *Loving Kindness w/in Rooted Connection
