Great Circle Ketubah
Great Circle -The four seasons depicted around the circle. A poem celebrating the connectiveness of life (see below) is intertwined with the artwork.
The text is in the center.
In the great circle
Winter winds sough through black night branches The owl teases us with varying calls
Tho we cannot see him All life flows in a delicate balance
Rains of spring bring forth
Dazzling flowers unto summer We dance a common dance
Our songs rise together in one voice
The thread running thru all things binds us firmly to the universe
And in this connection, we are rich & glad & unafraid It is in this perpetual circle that we move
And all life is one
