Praised be the Lord of Imperfection

Praised be the Lord 
of Imperfection.

Your flaws are everywhere:
In the elm's unbalanced foliage                                     
and the asymmetric faces of Your creatures.

You form the ripping floods                                                      
that tear the forests
and bend tornadoes in a twisted dance.                                                                                     

The lion is blotched with age and mud,                          
and the Shabbas silverware lies stained
as a reminder.

Praised be Your Torah of scratches and scars.

Praised be Your discolorations,
for they are puzzles and poems
of your sacred character.

-Danny Siegel

To one that is joined to all the living, there is hope

-Ecclesiastes 9:4
