HELLO POETRY LOVERS,

 

I THINK I'M JUST A BIT AHEAD OF TIME, WHICH AFFORDS ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE THE FIRST TO WISH YOU A GOOD NEW YEAR, 5777!

IMAGINE THE CENTURIES THAT ENCOMPASS ALL WE KNOW OF OUR PEOPLE, OUR FAITH, OUR TRADITIONS---OUR HISTORY AS JEWS IN THIS WORLD!

MOST OF WHO AND WHAT WE ARE IS OWED TO OUR TREASURED PAST. HOW WONDERFUL TO POSSESS THIS UNIQUE AND PRECIOUS HERITAGE, TO BE ABLE TO WISH EACH OTHER, JUST AS OUR ANCESTORS DID,

"SHANA TOVA"



Summer leaves us

Now autumn is assembling.

The valleys darken. The trees

Prepare to sleep again,

The fields begin

Their harvest. Apples

Are piled at the roadside

In bushels, as the yellow moon rises:



This is the repetition

Of Creation.

And the mother gathers the kinder to her table.

With her hand extended, as a signal,

She ignites the flames

Distinct, gold, reminding all

Come here

Come here, remember.



And their voices tremble,

 

Alive

In praise, in prayer.

                          --JUDITH R. ROBINSON

 

THANKS FOR CLICKING IN! XO JUDY

How can a person not like this season. The beauty and glory of the holidays, the color of the leaves to be raked up,the coolness of the weather rather than the sweltering heat, the excitement of the children back school learning.
