A Poem For Freedom: Rosh Chodesh Nisan

Nisan Month of awakening Of red tulips Yellow forsythia

Blue skies

Grays turn to greens


Nisan

Month of new life

Plants flex their muscles

Stems thrust up

Roots push down

Slow and forceful


Nisan

Month of freedom

and of memories

Long ago

We crossed a sea

Received a gift


Nisan

Month of liberation

Breakthroughs and challenges

Free from bondage

Redeemed from constriction

Tightness moves to openness


Nisan

Month of spring

Grant us freedom

Hold our hands

Release us from our bonds

Let us soar
