Beneath the foundations of the World,
lie the waters of repentance.
In their quietness they are serene.
For in their strength
they have no need of haste.

At any moment, they await you.
On the brink of the unthinkable,
those waters know your name.
They rest together to envelop your shame,
to transform your error into healing.

And within and surrounding,
the chesed* of HaShem,
dances on the surface,
and moves among the deep,
rejoicing in the turning of your soul.

In that flowing clearness,
are the fires of creation.
Brought forth from its mercy,
spreading out upon all the earth,
the song of Joy in the midst of chaos…..
the foundation of Hope, before despair was known.

D’vorah Davida

*Mercy, kindness
