Reflection for Rosh Chodesh Elul

Judith Golden


A month of preparation
For standing naked before You
Finishing unfinished business
Asking and granting forgiveness
Coming clean
So inner light can shine
Touching Eternal Light

To face my fear
To face You unashamed

As I lighten 
By shedding burdens
Of withholding
Of holding back
Of cluttered mind and space and relationships

Removing obstacles
I open my heart
To shine 
With the freedom
Of being me
Living in You
