Shabbat Shalom

Sweet woman of Yahweh
sing to me
the Song of Songs
song of love
with kisses of wine.

I desire you
as Adam desired Eve
primordial affection
this knowledge I seek of you
my beloved one.

You are dark and beautiful
but grace alone is deceitful
beauty by itself ever so vain
you my love possess both
coupled with the fear of Yahweh
for you are deserved of praise.

I seek you
when dusk turns to night
Shabbat
the remnants of daylight
is in your eyes
leaving a kiss of the days memory.

Let us read from the books of Zohar
we are surrounded
by the Kabballat angels
where the Shabbat Queen
restores our love each week.

Oh my love
suspended are we
between the secular
and the sacred.

Almighty God has created
this wonderful world for us
in radiant shards and sparks of light
tonight we tend our souls.

Come let us embrace the Kaballah
I draw for you
a most wonderful mandala
for my darling 
 a dream is dreamed three times.

The evening is upon us
I see over your shoulder falling
your hair in serpent like ringlets
your black hair is twisted
to allure you to me
my new found lover
Shabbat Shalom....
