Born For Infinity

As water falls
  from clouds
And music flows
from guitars
and words leave
  the poet
and light
  pours from stars

As art
 from the painter
 scent radiates
from bloom
peach tree
bursts from pit
 child born
of womb

As attraction
leaves the magnet
love departs the heart
heat leaves the fire
Auras
from souls depart

Magnolia Minorah And Other Poems

Folder: 
Jewish Teachers

 

Magnolia minorah..
polytongued pink flames

BUTTERFLY

Nabokov said that life was
a brief bright light
between 2 darknesses..
as if he were describing
a little butterfly's
glowing body between
2 dark purple wings..
one on his impaler's board..
.. the sign he was initiated
into the satanic priesthood
of lepidoperterists..

MOSES AND DAVID

Because of his transgressions
Moses could not
enter
the promised land.
Because of his mistakes
David could not
enter the temple.
Not until their next
lives.

 

 

JEWISH TEACHERS

ROOT IN OUR HEARTS

The rain, weed-wed,
has
multiplied
these
gray haired flakeheads
and now

dandelion seeds float in the air..
by the Bubble Blower sent aloft..
which ones will mystically touchdown..
to root in our hearts?

NOT IN CHAOTIC SHARDS

Not in chaotic shards
do dandelion seeds
burst from their ball.
Each part as perfect
as the whole.
Each each contains
the all.

ABSALOM

Oh Absalom
Oh Absalom
we will not bid you
goodbye
but say shalom
as your father learns
the ways of peace

NORTH AND SOUTH

If Absalom had cut
his hair it would not
have caught on the branches
of a tree.
If Samson had not cut
his hair he would not
have lost strength
to Delilah's wiles.
For each soul God
has a different path.

MARVIN KATZ

He expanded so many
from affection
for dogs and cats
to a love encircling
all beings..
did Marvin Katz

FIRE IN THEIR EYES

She could see
by the new fire
in their eyes
that she had lit
their souls

.. and yet
had not diminished
her own flame

to Betty
Friedan and to Doris Haddock, Granny D, who at the age of 90 walked 3000
miles across the US to bring about clean $ in America

Only the maker can make
the shoe.
Only the wearer
can tell if it fits.
This is the argument
for democracy..
said to his students
David Spitz.

* Dr Spitz taught his students that
the US Senate, Supreme Court, and
United Nations were inherently undemocratic.

DAVID'S MERCY TO GOLIATH

We know not the fruit's hue
from that of the bloom.
Gold tomato blossoms
become red spheres.
The pointed yellow star
becomes the linga
of the cucumber.
The red blood of Nazi
camp suffering
has been transmuted in
most..
to an awesome forgiveness.

By this mercy
did David
convert
the heart of Goliath

 

ELOHIM

He needn't reach the stars..
stars' light reached to him..
He needn't climb to God.
Inside him ..... Elohim.

HEARTREMAKER

Some are heartbreakers
She is a heartremaker.

 

YEHUDI MENUHIN

Released from clouds
by peasized dry ice
were thousands of pounds
of snow wedding rice.

Released from clouds
by wee tips of forked lightning
the rain's awesome downpour
.. sky sighed in lightening

The kiss of King Charming
Sleeping Beauty sparked
Total love's touch
to Beloved arced.

The words of the rabbi
resound in the mind
Guru shaktipat
forever opes crown.

The sun's rays
wand alive the iris
Waterdrops waken
the starseeds of Isis.

The notes of
Menuhin's
heartsky piercing violin
cause frozen tears
of pain
uncontrolled to rain.

Shaktipat:
Over 20,000 year old Sanskrit word for the touch of the guru which
awakens the thousand petaled lotus or the crown chakra.. Yehudi Menuhin
was a vegetarian who worked for peace many decades..

HEART ARK

Heark! Heark!
I speak of the
ark
of my friend's heart
Unlike Noah's
it contains all beings
every cockroach
every lark

to Jan F

MOSES ROD IN EACH

Omnipotent God
can cause any rod
to strike fountains
from stone mountains
or the waters of love
which dwell in each heart

WANDERING JEW

The plant
of wandering Jew
has added more
leaves
to his tome
of poems
.. they
are of purple print
on pages of lime

 

MEDITATING SUN

The sun does nothing
but meditate.. yet flow
his rays
in 360 cubed ways.
He is focused on one
point, but his energy
transforms..
all points.

(to Marty Solomon)

Do snapping turtles

Author's Notes/Comments: 

 Isaac Bashevis Singer
 said the following: No lepidopterist's collection in the entire world...full if iridescent wings, is worth the life of a single butterfly.
