13th Sphere

I fly today to place unknown
from a past now long and gone
I fly away from where I’ve been
from all the things I know and seen
into the blue that lays out there
as high as prayers can ever dare.

Above the crimson sun I fly
into the blue that is Your eye
still deeper into space–
where once upon we knew Your Grace.

As I fly and as I sail
beyond commotion and guttering gales
I see the wake that stretches on
before we cried in Babylon.

To the Garden where we played
before we knew of good and bad–
where we were happy and never sad
and sat together as One—unclad.

I fly to You to Thirteenth Sphere
where all is crisp and very clear
where We will be at last in peace
and where my soul You’ll gently ease.

Autumn Morning  

In the city of Angels
high above the trees
I awoke one autumn morning
to the sound of buzzing bees.

My room was sweet with orange scent
a tinge of Fall nipped chilled the air
and the sweep of sky above
held the deepest of my prayers.

Autumn morning flushed Fall colors
of a special blush–
and the blowing breeze caressed me
with a sudden rush.

In the city where the Angels
fly high and far below
with fading warmth of autumn
I basked in God’s soft glow.

New Year Resolution | תשליך

 

מי שאיבד אותי בכוונה
והמשיך לו הלאה בלי לב והבנה
לא ימצא אותי גם בטעות
זל זל זמן השאננות

את מה שיש לי יש
ולא יקחו לי לעולם
ואת מה שאין לי אין
לא אצטרך עוד אף פעם

מי שהלך הלך
מי שאיבד
ומי שהושלך
מי שלקח
ומי שמצא
מי שלא שאהב
ומי שלא רצה
שלא יחזור לכאן גם בטעות
זל זל זמן השאננות

Who by choice let go and lost me
his heart he closed to cries and pleas
not again will ever find me
for selfishness is a disease.

Who I am
will never die
and to all that’s gone
I say ‘Goodbye’:

To those who tossed me
and then discarded–
to those who took
and then departed–
whomsoever did not love
and all of those who killed my doves.

Whosoever set out to hurt me
his heart he closed to turn mean
need not come to ever see me
your gratitude you smeared too lean.

Chucks n’ Ducks

Muscovy Duck and Muscovy Drake
waddled and wiggled around the lake
squawking and clucking lullabies
to cranky chicks chirping their cries.

Frolicking Fish

And the fish are swimming
and the whales are singing
in the ocean deep
as He keeps His eyes open
while His children sleep.
Arise!

Magnificent Michigan

There were breathtaking skies
and endless growing fields
where they lived in humble shelters
yielding God’s own will.
