MUKUROB

circling 
Mukurob -
its aspect now changed

only by our own actions
can we change our perspective and bring about a change

the shadows 
will inexorably shift 
and the warmth radiated is comforting 
moving out of the shadows 
ease things into focus by the new light shed on it

it does not matter how long we look at something or examine it, 
it won’t change 
WE need to circle 
in order to improve the aspect of a given situation  
moving out of our comfort zone to succeed
circling 
the rock

    Just checking in Suz, a thoughtful write..[in general I am not a PC person, too direct and blunt..too little of my time goes into thinking before I speak [I'm trying to do better] in Hear Oh L-ord, I was attempting a traditional write so chose purposefully to use the Orthodox presentation of the word G-d. And I am happy folks noticed and learned something new about another culture. The name of G-d is not spoken or writen in strict Jewish tradition]. Light & Love
