5 Quintets About the Unknown, a Poem to God

1.
i don’t understand what God is,
only what i’ve been told,
what i do know
is that i am in love with
the Unknown.
2.
in love with God,
traveling the unpaved roads,
grazing in the fields that you do not know,
fill the roads with silver and gold as
your heart roams those fields Unknown.
3.
the Unknowing is in my heart,
carried through the day,
don’t know much,
yet i still pray,
asking Hashem to guide the way.
4.
laying in bed at night
this is really what i say –
“here i am, here i am, here i am,
i love you Hashem,”
nothing else needs to be said.
5.
getting out of bed this
and every day,
my heart open and again i say –
“here i am, here i am, here i am,”
i am in love with you Hashem.

About Todd Greenberg

A Jew by birth, a seeker for 60 years. Having realized that all my previous studies and searching brought me back to Judaism as the foundation for my Spiritual practice and my connection to Hashem. Life's love and all that has been challenged in me has been inspirational over the last year to write poetry. Thank you for the opportunity to share what is in my heart and mind.
