A lifelong Catholic explores Judaism.




Eitz Chayim

Verses from the Tehillim,
          a song
    in a timeless tongue:
try the language of the hymn ---
    words come out half-wrong.

 

Erev Shabbat: the temple
          holds kind
    faces all around:
Adonai, Love Eternal,
    meets me where I stand.

How enjoyable are your poems! This lovely exploration into something so different (and so similar) to what you know is joyful and it tells us so much about the person you are.

I like the local nature of your poetry, the glimpses you give us of your world. It's nice.

As well, they are glimpses of your thoughts.

Shalom.
