Praying with Fringes 4/04/2017 – We will wrap ourselves in this knowing

On the edge of Pesach
Elliott batTzedek

Blessed this edge where we wait, balancing,
weighing our own lives.
Will we choose, finally, liberation-
meaning everyone-
or will we choose ourselves
and leave others behind
still enslaved?
Blessed are we
when our choosings
begin to form redemption
from every fragment
from any raw material.

Sacred is this act
of taking responsibility
for the future of the worlds.
We will wrap ourselves in this knowing-
carry it across silence and sea
into a future
hanging
in the balance.
