Avodah in Two Parts

Part 1.
In the heaviness
Of these post-October 7th mornings,
We turn to our avodah,
Our Holy Service:
The gathering up 
Of the ashes of our intention
On the altar of what was, the day before.
Perhaps it is our change of vestments
That helps to sanctify
The ground blessed as holy, pure, expansive
A place to rest
Outside of the camp,
It is quieter.   
Part 2.

Begin, again.
