On Study And Prayer

ON STUDY AND PRAYER I spend As much time As is practical, Studying and praying Which is a creation As real As the growth Of a tree So my happiness Is woven From the peace Of hours. Studying Scripture Is like Growing a tree – Green and musical. As I scan The Aramaic Letters Of the Zohar The air is Charged With blessings In the shadow Of a synagogue. Studying Is like Laying in a Silken cradle Where the wind Scatters my Winter dreams And life With my Precious Marianne Is like Two robins Building a nest. Every morning Is a mystery In the realm Of lived prayer Where my Words Are like A sparrow’s Song to God.
