The Schmooze

POEM: 4/2/07 (for the New Haggadah)

we pray to pray
to be able to

not a matter of if
but a matter of when

in hard times     in tough times
sing the blues     to the ones you love

begin with the love at hand
begin by listening     begin by saying

we pray to pray
to be able to

may we have the protective blood upon our doors
may the avenging angel

may the plagues
pass us by

these the days we treasure
simple days      without disturbance

family & loved ones
alert engaged on their way

in hard times    re-think the basics
breathing    sitting    exercising    eating    sleeping    dreaming    touching

we pray to pray
to be able to

learning from the Seder
that we have it within us

to sustain
one another

we pray to pray
to be able to
