Days of Awe (Friday)

The 10 days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are a time when we are supposed to be introspective. Think about what we did, and didn’t do. And reconcile.


Some people make lists

what they did what they’ll do

they list intentions

some people know exactly what they

want when they shop.

I have been collecting

other people’s lists

forever.  Sometimes they leave them

in their shopping carts.

Someone  wrote once

milk eggs orange juice

divorce. Maybe this year I’ll

write my own list. Not of intentions

exactly.  Just a few good words.
