Down memory lane in dreams, keeping an eye out for as I tossed and turned, insomnia knocking at my door with eyes of my Eleanor and tears of ninety-four as if it were yesterday she slipped away from my arms Forevermore now beneath the ground's floor   but soon the lords of Thor will spore my bones that I might rest with my Eleanor playing leapfrog in my mind's fog As the spirits of winter...Read On


Fawning Twine

With a rose of twining vine about your spirit shining and memories of trellises with petals of gold and thorns of a kind, a scent so bold you are as beautiful as a flower With the dew of the dawn of the morning's fawning ravishing pine green eyes whispering echoes with thimbles of combs in your hair lusting I want to be with you forever As soft as the leaves in the cup my tea a distant...Read On


Dear Brother Part II: I'm sorry

If you ever see this... it is all I have been wanting to say that I could not. Please forgive me.

I love you- You know that right? Every time that I have told you no, I was hoping it was for your own good. You say you are no longer the same person, That he died long ago. I don't belive you. I will always see you as the strong, amazing, and most bravest person I've ever known. You are my other half. When you went away, A part of me did as well. I started listening to your...Read On


To Leila

She once meant the world to you, but is she still in the world?

What seek ye? What dreams do you chase? New latitudes, a new meridian? This daily life is too quotidian? So real that it turns out surreal? No midnight love shares your embrace? The king has masked his tyrant’s face. You put yourself in Hamlet’s place? Take it to the limit? And Beyond? Or instead, Could you be dead? Could it be you died one summer day? Summertime blue and sandy,...Read On


Poinsettia Moon

Intoxication with perfumery in a chapel of webs memories like a dark poinsettia moon and whispers at twilight   Before the edge of dawn as your breath awakes me with the snow of pollen and a ghostly kiss Intoxicated with perfumery as the willows bend low in an arabesque of our love in a chapel of webs memories Like a dark poinsettia moon on a quiet pond of loons echoing the past coming...Read On


Land Over

Drift by my window with an autumn's breeze a zephyr at the tail of midnight blue like a Stradivarius fined tuned shrouded in a cloud of mystical dew from the swing of the moon   Dripping a valance from your lips on a staircase of our love a balustrade of from above as God saves the oboes oboes of silence as we kiss Freestone from the vines the peach zest of our cider in the ambrosia of...Read On


Diamond In The Rough

Believe in your Future and forgive the past Laugh at yourself laugh in the moments And heck just laugh!   When things go wrong, and they often will And life feels like it's constantly uphill Try to forgive when other's get it wrong Perhaps they’re struggling to connect and belong   Sometimes the words being thought Aren’t what actually what gets said Those kindly meant, soft...Read On


Thinking Of Love

I was thinking of you today Thinking of how you made me laugh. How coming home to you put a smile on my face And that even in our hardest moments I never  alone Loving you taught me much I learnt to laugh at myself, love myself despite my faults You  made me want to be a better person I found myself looking at my days, thinking, what can I do for you to make your day happier In quiet...Read On



Endless nights ...

We used to talk a lot About anything every night A few hours with me Before starting your day After preparing for bed Ending my day with you Now I only have Intimate moments With the deafening Silence of the night And the nagging scream Inside my head A smirk pasted On the face of the moon Laughing at my expense Dancing around my aching heart Shining brightly down on me Mocking...Read On


Angels and Opportunities

Whatever you do Wherever you roam Try to make where you are Feel a little like home Search deep within your heart For a memory that's okay Cherish and hold it close to you Each night and every day Remember being loved Is a warm feeling inside So hold your head up high And walk tall, with pride Take a step forward Each day if you can You'll soon see changes happening If you make a life plan...Read On


Choose Love

You are my Angel

In my dreams. I am in your arms. Holding me. Quieting me. Saving me. Healing my broken heart. Teaching me. To love again. Your divine love. Humbles me. You are my Angel. Sent from above. I choose love.  ...Read On


Early Hours

Sometimes in the early hours When we cannot sleep Our thoughts may turn to things That make our eyes weep   Sometimes in those moments When thoughts run through our head We ponder on what happened Things done, thought and said   Perhaps we may have Somewhere deep inside Something that may feel broken Which we choose to hide   It's in the early hours That maybe we reflect ...Read On


Walking Away

When we both pass beyond regrets will all be gone

All of our regrets will be gone as soon as we have passed beyond. Beyond the aches, the sorrows, all will pass away. But the love will live, it simply will not die. Is this understood my precious, darling, friends and lovers? Is it understood, please, and thank you, my treasured gems of life and joy, am I not ever so polite? Do you recall the way we walked, the way we talked, the way...Read On


The Maze

The Maze

I haven't lost you I just got lost in a maze   There we were together Then one day you took a different direction And I couldn't find you You had found the end of the maze Walked your own path Chosen your own way   Oh I wish I'd seen the path you were walking Wish I'd been able to show you a different way   But sometimes alas That isn't our choice...   I'm lost in this maze ...Read On


Viranda Of A Rickshaw

With a brush of a zephyr, I kiss in a copse of the willow's well   beholding your body and soul with Saki's aphrodisiac   With footprints on a lily pad in a pond of golden koi with ripples of echoes expressing our love As the autumn moon dance and you with a lotus in your hair the fireflies in lanterns wink from the viranda of a rickshaw   Feeling the warmth of the hibachi in a copse of...Read On


Prince Of Rings

She calls me her laureate in my dreams Although distant, I feel her pulse As I whisper a prayer of evergreens With a tear dripping from the candlelight Like a star of emerald from her beautiful eyes Glowing like a halo of harps and strings. She calls me her laureate and Prince of Rings And as the dawn open its wings With a song of love, my maiden fair In my glorious vision of daylight...Read On


Widow's Dew

Weeping of the widow's dew of imagery in my mind a dark night just in spite as a breath of death flew Beneath the stone, I sleep feeling worms quadrille bound joy in my spell this virgin child of Hell Without a gospel or prayer on a long trail of despair beyond the veil to this forsaken soil And no marrow in my bones as my eyes of blue pale of cataracts and webs this virgin child of Hell...Read On



in every strokes ...

In every pencil that I have used to draw lines, with different colors and with a different hue,  different it may be but what a beautiful combination they are when together in one. In every watercolor I have used to draw, when I was young. The canvas got messy and looks useless. When they dried up they come alive, and it becomes a new life. In every brush strokes of colors that touch my...Read On

Definitely Not Moon Challenge - Moon's Glow

Quarter-moon, harvest moon, blood moon, lover’s moon A cow jumped over the moon, Was I once so very young And grew old so very soon?   An ebbing tide, a waning heart, the tears of hopes betrayed So far away, yet here on earth The moon is much the symbol In every skit of life that’s played.   A cardboard box, a wooden sword, a towel makes a cape A rocket ship to the moon The...Read On


My Mind's Window

Through the dark of my mind's window trapped in a void of hanging webs came a shadow of a star lighting a candle whispering a slow burn of memories as the tallow warms my heart scented of an autumn's jar   pulsing blue angels with wings clinging to my mind's window in condensation of your beautiful face  ...Read On


Distant Memories Of An Affair

A true story of forbidden love

Almost forty years have passed since that fateful day When in a moment of anguish our affair died, Discovered in the tender bliss of recent sex, Nakedly entwined in each other’s loving arms. We had grown careless under the beguiling spell  Of overwhelming desire, blinded by passion, And reaped the just harvest of our duplicity. For several weeks I thought my life was threatened And I...Read On



As the essence of autumn's potpourri blow across the meadows of reds and umbers leaves drift by my window with memories like a carpet of velvet frost Of when the picket fence was white and the apples in the orchard were ripe as the cider touched your lips like cinnamon sticks of sweet And the bees had their own peccadillos in the comb of the honey bear trees across the meadows of reds...Read On


More Grandly Than We Knew

Darkling ere the dawn

This is true if all else fails, we traveled much we two, within our hearts, between our minds, remembering more, much more, teaching you and reaching me more grandly than we knew. So much has been together, so much has been renewed, smell the moisture, wetness, hear the splashing streets, far and wide we wandered and we will anew. Both of us, the pair of us, we went where I had been, where...Read On


A Dark Matter

I see you everywhere I go

"A Dark Matter" (Raanana, October 4, 2018) I see you everywhere I go You follow me even into the bedroom And crawl into bed beside me Entering my dreams. You are the dark sun shining your dark photons, Your shadows are my only light. You are every age you've ever been, You are the idea of you Just after I discovered I was pregnant, You are this thing growing in my belly Now, this...Read On



In patches on the moon of shadows, hosting shadows of maria, lava. Black like a dark star of raven hair, gilded by beams of sensuality, And eyes of obsidian coal like a sensual Stratovarius With gossamer strings of teeth. Tuned to the pale of sorrows in the laurels of my agnóstica With the quiver of my pen beholds, ripples to my soul's philosophy. Of the ink and the thorn bound by...Read On



Leave the dog! We have only seven seconds!

"Shebi" Three in the morning It was half-time and she was a cheerleader. All eyes were on her, but especially Those of the team captain. Suddenly she was at the prom Dressed in white like Cinderella When her husband’s voice intruded rudely. “Shebi! Wake up,” he shouted, pulling her up. “It’s another Code Red – run to Yuval’s room!” He was already running to their living room. ...Read On



Me? I died with Omar.

"Jameela" Three in the morning The shuffle of Rezek’s feet wake her from her thoughts, Not that she was really sleeping. Who can sleep with so much to worry about? Her husband’s pillow is empty. Soon Yousef will come to visit us, My husband’s friend from madrasa. These days Yousef is a big-time commander in Hamas. He will ask about Rezek. Why isn’t he in madrasa like the other...Read On


Natures muse

Wanderlust trips erratic rambles Blazes me forward without any thought Brooks effuse productive gurgles Splishing down the bump'ety walk   My soul is petted by the forest Soothing silence, natures' seductive caress Thought is washed from every crevice Vacuums of blankness, my perfect bliss   Lying still, birdsong slowly fades The crickets begin their symphonies measure ...Read On


Verdant Green

Feeling spirits of Shiloh, as I walk the fields of battle Now verdant green with shadows and a stone Beneath you lay as the stone grows cold On the banks of a river as kids, we played Now God has carried you away but your soul remains Yet the peace in the valley comes with autumn's frost Of the love of my life, that I have lost And the tears that give me pain As I hear you, six feet...Read On



... And the fires flickered on his father’s face.

"Yuval" Three in the morning A soft blue light emanated under the blanket. His father stared into the darkness at the tell-tale light And whispered, “Aren’t you asleep yet?” “Wait! I’m fighting the Klaxons,” Yuval whispered back. The twelve-year-old jinxed left and downward Avoiding a thorg and racked up survival points Passing safely through an asteroid belt When the sirens...Read On
