The Garden

By Cantor Jessica Epstein, 12/1/2014

The Garden

Gardening is about moments.

The holy moment when seed sprouts leaves and begins to feel its way to sun.

When red dagger peony stems break frozen free and arc toward future fragrance.

Fading always, something alive

And living always, something fading.

And these come to tell us who we are.


Blowing leaves and trimming grass are weekly heard, rarely observed.

But buds bursting,

fungus creeping

blight stalking,

bugs chewing,

Do Not Stand Idly By (Leviticus 19)

An epidemic. 30,000 deaths. And I’m not even talking about ebola. This is the number of Americans that die each year due to gun violence.

We are always here to help!
