A Seder on Zoom
We’re having a Seder on Zoom
And Passover foods we'll consume.
We’ll eat as a group
Things like matzoh ball soup
But our seats won’t be in the same room.

We’ll read the Haggadah to tell
Of the story we all know so well –

Premium Member Whispers of autumn we longingly recall
Under the canopy of the pine trees we lay
Enthralled in saffron shades of flaming fall-forest
As feisty robins sing and zesty sparrows play
Nestled in thick branches of evergreen foliage.

Enamored by blue-sky assimilating orange vibes
Twilight illuminates scarlet face of crimson arc
Having kissed...Read More

I see you, my two-legged neighbor
Stopping and standing at the yellow-tape barricade to my home.
I wonder where you all have been?

I miss you walking on your looped path through my backyard
With wires going into your ears and those branches you...Read More

A beautiful day well spent
Before the world ends, take my hand
Put your lips on mine, times running thin
We can have dinner, smoke up a bowel
Make love a few times, get drunk by the pool
Watch movies all night, enjoy the sun rise
Create art in the...Read More

Shadowless sundown
Beating down the pyre
Intake from the boys around
Persistence to admire

Genesis of honest thoughts
Fear melts me to the wire
Apocalypse, the greedy bought
We dance around the fire

Weeping Prophets sing the news
While sunshine slowly loses time
The days will melt into a noose

Premium Member Fowl Watching Selves in Mirror
For two hours the Amish noticed the funny fowl dance
Delighting that the rooster and guineas attacked the mirror
The Amish women laughed as they hung out clothes to prance
Some were called to look with a slick, “Hey! Come over here!”

It is...Read More

One People, One Sky

The welkin above and the stars thereof
are a true delight to behold.
There we’re connected in something to love
through the sky that can all enfold.

Boundaries vanish and strife disappears
by assuming perspective grand
when together we look at stellar spheres,
irrespective of local land.

Premium Member Italian morning
They wait perfumed in fresh clothes,
The kids, at the top of the stairs;
We’ll be back by evening Auntie, says the mother,
C’mon or we’ll miss the corriera. 
They troop off down the stairs,
Cross a courtyard into the whining of
A carpenters lathe,
And...Read More

The Eagle mountain towers high behind the hills
To let its crest exhale a fresh breeze of Spring
The acid cold down here, still freezing the wings
As the birds in thick trees snuggle, closely still

Premium Member When the sun set
There you're alone
Gazing blue waters
In emerald splendor
Embedded within
A romantic landscape.

Visions of sundown
Peeking through blossoms
Bow down to greet you
And caress in love
Hints of my message.

You look elsewhere
At script on horizon
Setting sun engraves
Upon twilight tender
In vermillion intents,
As it dips beneath
Dreams of hushed...Read More

Whispering leaves, summer breeze,
A time to postpone all destinies.
In crimson gown, she's on the town,
'Til the dark eyes go slowly down.

Leaving memories of the golden hours,
Laughing children in leafy bowers;
The sunny noon, with the robin's tune,
And the feverish blossoms aswoon!

But,...Read More

Premium Member WHY I LOVE NEGRO SPIRITUALS when the only way out was death
I know why we sang those songs;
I have a spiritual 
Why I LOVE NEGRO Spirituals-

those songs we sang.
We sang out messages to the universe,
and to each other, of how tired we were.
Maybe this God would save us if

Blinding dazed commuters heading west
Their cars in single file attempt to scatter

While towers scraping as high as they can reach
Just crave to punch their...Read More

I had heard about it.

Then I saw it being built on the burial ground
of a field I had many times
played war upon.

Between noon and sundown,
the concrete arose;
an ashen boned jaw
riveted to the skyline.

I still looked to the green field
where, as...Read More

Bounce up, sun,
Golden hour's begun;
Bouncy, bouncy hot!
Bounce up, boy,
In childish joy.
Bounce your blue ball,
Against the green wall.
Bouncy, bouncy boy!

Teeth like a pearl,
Bounce red balloon,
Within the month of June;
Bouncy, bouncy balls!

11 little haikus
The light wind breezed willow,
my hangover disappeared in the spring,
the dew is so light,meantime,i felt so sad

Linnets perched at the wild pond,
For whom,the fragrance wreathes the forest.
This autumn,is just the tears of Chrysanthemum

Letting the bloody mist stray,
