Communion (Prompt: Celebration Poem)

My favorite moment
of the celebration
is the communion.

With lights lowered
and only the sound of
a solo piano

I begin
my silent prayer
in Hebrew
“Baruch Hashem”
and soon am lost
in an sea
of exhales
and petitions

but I never feel
that I am
asking for too much.

Unexpectedly,
I feel safe.
