Sabbath Morning

Here you're just as likely to meet God as anyone else

"Sabbath Morning"

(Raanana, January 6, 2018)

Sabbath morning

Rainwashed and sundazzled

A day as fresh as any you'll ever find.

Walking Daisy in the promised land,

America still sleeps snugly under night.

Here you're just as likely to meet God as anyone else

Along the tree-arched paths

(Just be careful not to look Him in the eyes).

The cats in the courtyard form a minyan

For their murmured prayers in the silent warmth

And I ask no one in particular

Who needs all the synagogues,

Churches and cathedrals?
