Hovering — What God Does Over Your Shabbat Island in Time

Hovering to
Every side in
Neverending mystery,
Rock of our
Yearning.

You already know how to belt out mi kamokha (who is like You?!) like a Broadway star. Here’s a little acrostic mi kamokha liturgical poem to extend that praise off Broadway. A careful reader like yourself will notice that the acrostic is on my first name. Pretty nifty, eh! (Or silly, if you prefer. But, remember that in the days before copyright, this is how poets established authorship.) If you think it’s nifty, I’m sure you can write one yourself using the letters of your first name, of your last name, or of your full name. You also could try a double acrostic, in which you use the letters twice (for example, HHEENNRRYY).
