Yom Kippur

I hope everyone has a good Yom Kippur! We did!

Yom Kippur
He stands annoyed in his blue uniform
his lowly task is to keep us safe as we pray.
We’re glad he’s outside.

Inside standing at his pulpit, he surveys the crowd
like a proud father.
Everyone smiles brightly,
their expressions matching the best outfits,
while silently they atone for their sins.

The father stands strong like an ancient tree,
as the willowy teen leans on his shoulder for support.
