Blessings – Day 5

Shabbat Shalom. Inspiring services tonight, which always awaken creativity in me.

Day 5/Verse 5 of acrostic prayer poem*:

Thank you God
for the blessing of
emptiness, for exorcising
excess to
embolden energy.

 

VAST EMPTINESS, 1998, Kathryn Szoka


Each day for 26 days – counting from December 8, 2014 – I am writing one stanza of what will be, when finished, a 26-stanza acrostic prayer poem about blessings. For more information, including why I chose the English alphabet instead of the Hebrew one, check out my initial post.
