How little credit you are given 
to have chosen to given birth!
Millions of aborted children~
where are their bodies now?
An answer far too frightening
us to unearth!

You took your child home, no
Daddy to there to help you.
But, oh the joy~~ staring into

Premium Member Do you know me

My friend, do you know me?
   I am a Pharisee
No, not per the dictionary
  Which mischaracterizes my beliefs and me

For while he keeps the tradition, it's true
  A Pharisee's an ever-evolving Jew
He delves deep into the...Read More

"The Deconstructed Lilith"

Decomposing from a past
left forgotten and buried 
under the weakness of the first man banished

Her Forest,

She rests, bound in the arms of angst 
eternally suspended, 
invisible and unheard

gagged, Her spirit waits 
and watches

Her time is near
to rise...Read More

His days were hard, his nights were long
The Psalmist woke, six hours 'fore dawn
Awakened by a breeze so slight
His chamber still bereft of light
Some scoff he rose the lyre to play
The record shows he stood and prayed

Premium Member Mourning the Passing of Herman Wouk
An old-fashioned modern Jew
  He was brilliant, unique
Weaving the strands of tradition
  Into best-selling novels sleek 

A Navy man, aboard a WW2 mine-sweep
  Mr. Wouk loved letters, his country, and
Talmudic wisdom, from which his works drew deep

The new education system
In truth it’s meant to twist ‘em
Into something that
A child ain’t meant to be
It steals their precious playtime
Corrupts their daily timeline
It heralds a New World Order

It takes more, than just one man
In their evil global plan
To change...Read More

The periwinkle petals closed
As daylight turned to dark--
And nighttime fell like dampened silk,
To hush the meadowlark.

While the Talmud--and the holy words;
The violins, and song--
Fell silent in the midst of dark
Seeming out-of-place, or wrong.

And faith became a memory,
Like love's first gentle...Read More

Stelae 7:30 am

they have seen more 
than their age.
But in the hazy,
half morning
field of “stelae”,
we, somnambulant
select our optimal view
between the pages of the Talmud.

In the text of your staccato voice,
there is,
our consensual agreement of being.
It is not quite,
the signatured artefact
of strict adherence,
