The thing about crazy lover
Do not live me,
Let me die,
Or let me become yours.

Look, do not think 
I love to say love,
Or do not deny me
And die,Let me stay.

It's Christmas Day
  Chanukah too
A day of salvation
  for Christian and Jew

  That much is true 
Yet we all unite
  in the Festivals' Lights...

Bunny Day
Christmas is now the Holidays.
But Hanukkah is still Hanukkah
and Ramadan is still Ramadan.

Easter still has its name.
The media needs more time
to make the change.

Question
Lord, Why does Satan determine
Who is admitted to this country
Who live in different neighborhoods
Who goes to college
Who is rich or poor
Who our leaders will be
Who will live or die
Why

I am the One who determines...

how long
is a foot locker
and what
do they keep in it?

foot lockers
foot solders
foot long hotdogs
footballs
what is the obsession 
are they politically correct
or are they just a foot fetishes
at the foot of my bed

Oh My Divinity
Oh my divinity, shalt thou absolve me?
For I bruised and gashed she 
For I deceived and deposed she
For I breached and abondoned she
For I let she go and escaped .
Oh my almighty,canst thou be venial?

Snowy Day Here in New York
As snowfall falls on the ground
     the day begins 
Looking out of my window 
    memories return 
of old politics, family, lovers,friends
   Amidst the holidays - XMAS, Chanukah, Kwaanza
     Festivus 
I find peace 
            in a blanket of white...

Chanukah, Again
Lights shining in 
  the night celebrate 
the re - birth 
of 
the 
spirit 
   Lights open the door
to the heart's deepest wishes 
Only celebrated by 
    a very small percentage 
of the world 
But it continues to bring glory 
   to those who let it into their hearts...

Adrenaline
With one bite, the jaws of life closed in 
More nervous than I ever have been 
Knees quivering as the sweat drips 
Leaking from my palms to my fingertips
My heart is running multiple laps
Beating loudly like hand claps
The truth overwhelms me 
Listening with my eyes closed, afraid to see...

Premium Member That Holiday Feeling
 ~ Melody:  On Top of Old Smokey ~

       In downtown Manhattan
          Women wearing mink fur
       Are happy to wish you
          Happy Holiday, sir

       They'll say Merry Christmas
          From all of us
       But not Happy Chanukah

Identity 

What a strange word 
It exists for those with longings
for the mystical past.

The world has many cultures
it is easy to get lost
in the wilderness called identity

without, one is a cloud in the sky
varies according to the weather. 
Wouldn`t that be wonderful
to belong to no one but oneself.

PROMISED LOVE

do when you think is done

dirty to dirtiest
good to better
as long as the charm is love...

At Night
At night life goes beyond limits
Shameful and fearless evaporates
Boys and girls tiptoe out of their abode to peculiar places
Blankets dances all the night

Even the gloomy is hailed with glamorous compliments
The sinner has a prerogative to sin
The dark hides us from the views
Only two witnesses are present
The moon and the stars

on a mantel they remind me what it took
of my life to make them gentle to the world

and with my I camera should I show the peace
or the war the cat hiding as I told her will be ok

Premium Member Battle Cry

"Who is like unto You, O Lord?"
 The Maccabees' battle cry
   For the sake of God
   They were willing to die 

Their holiday's name is Chanukah
Which is translated as 'dedication'
   The Temple's Lamp's restoration
   with a cruse of pure olive oil
   celebrated by lsrael's nation

No marches or military celebrations
~ Light is what ignites Jewish education...

Premium Member A Miracle for Modern Times
There was a Jewish man from Andorra
Who singed his rear end on a menorah
   Sparks flew to his feet
   Providing this treat
He sure danced one mean Chanukah hora






__________________________________________________
Notes:
  A menorah is the special Chanukah lamp lit for eight nights
  The hora is a traditional Jewish/Israeli celebratory circle dance

Premium Member Betting on Last
I've always loved predicting
Which will be the last to die.
I'm rarely right but still each night
I study them and try.

They start out on an equal plane
But who knows why they change.
Like human life spans, variance
Will always seem so strange.

So as the end draws near, I watch
To see which burns down last.
Just one more night and then another
Chanukah has passed....

Premium Member With Sugar on Top
The candles sometimes drop their flames;
The lions lose their tails.
The stars come out all crooked;
Some ineptitude prevails.

The wine jugs might have missing tops;
The dreidels look all right.
The flaws won’t matter, hopefully,
When loved ones take a bite.

For Chanukah’s the time when I
Roll out that dough and bake,
My grandma’s cookie cutters
And her recipe at stake.
