From my blog:
Thanks to The Velveteen Rabbi for alerting me that http://wordxwordfestival.com/ is having a 30 poems in 30 days contest. (I don’t think there are prizes but they do publish poems on their website, if you submit them.) I have subscribed to http://3030poetry.com/ for the daily prompts and have begun! I can’t guarantee I will write a poem a day but I like the idea so I got started with this haiku on the prompt “From Start to Finish”.
Noticing the breath
inhale, exhale, cool and warm
Tzimtzum over and over
This poem was inspired by the meditation practice I have begun since Stu and I attended the Or HaLev and Awakened Heart Project silent meditation retreat at Kibbutz Hannaton.
