OLD MAN MOSES - SCOTLAND RISES

Old man Moses sat upon his rock; contemplating, his woes
Moses ails but a vision of a land to his sons and daughters

Exiled from Israel thus...Read More

The Storm of Ages

I was given a taste of something... sweet. 
Innocence reborn a new, 
I... am... born... again. 

While some celebrate, 
others cringe and cry.
They try to mock and separate, 
what is truth and real? 

Yelling openly,

The
current 
President
of the U.S.
may look like a thug,
but is not much worse
than those who preceded him -
most of these have been war-mongers.
Trump is disgracefully pro-Israel,
but in that he is no worse than Clinton....Read More

If I Was God
If I was God

Premium Member SCHINDLER'S LIST-MUSIC, MELODY
Oh, that music from the movie,
so impassions me!
That haunting violin, with its moving
virtuosity.

Notes fill the air of man's most craven 
inhumanity to man.
The reminder that it can indeed, verily
happen again.

One man, Schindler, saved so many 
precious Jewish lives.

Broken Glass
We drink to Life. L'chaim. Summer smiles
In Leah's eyes, June sunlight gently glowing.
The glass waits on the earth, bowl, base, and stem 
Remembering. Then, shards beneath 
My foot. Then, Mazel tov, the guests all cry.
