Elul 13: Remember

We’ve had so much rain here.
Nearly every entrance into our neighbourhood is flooded.
It’s an inconvenience, though, and not life-threatening.

Some days
You stretch an arc in the sky.
It is,
as R’ Shimshon Raphael Hirsch taught,
a bond between heaven and earth.

I see it
and smile.
I remember You,
(though I have not forgotten You).
And hope
that You
remember me.
