POETRY

This past year has been one of significant disruption to our environments (natural, social, economic, and other). Many individuals rely on cultural connections as a way of finding meaning. Most cultures have creation stories which help to make sense of our being in the world; and many such stories include a reconnection with the divine. The Lurianic account of creation references a cosmological reparation, “Tikkun Olam,” through the gathering of light and souls. In recent times, this term has come to be associated with social responsibility for repairing our world. It is such a story that inspired the following poem:

The soul is hope

The soul is wish

The soul’s a shiny gnostic fish

Reflective scales of shattered light

Tikkun Olam, cancelled night
