Hazmat Suit

piercing the veil
a little bit at a time

unzipping my hazmat suit
the debris and the smoke
no longer keep me safe

the dust contained is revealed
be kind to yourself

as the mind clears, the heart opens
the haze rises away

there is more work to do

honoring where I have traversed
new adventures have arrived
go easy he says

Angels by my side
Hashem continues my journey


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.
