This week’s selection

And once below a time I lordly had the trees and leaves
Trail with daisies and barley
Down the rivers of the windfall light.

בסתר יער עד סחלב פרח בדד

In a secret place of an old-growth forest
an orchid bloomed in solitude

I want to go where the leaves are burning,
Burning in scarlet and gold;

Silence
and a deeper silence
when the crickets
hesitate

and already Jane is digging out
her colored tennis shoes,
one mauve, one yellow, like large crocuses.”

Haiku (stellar blue jays) [sic]

Hazel nuts, brown leaves,
They fly in formation, last reign — 
Blue drops, summer sky.

Give Us a Hand – תֵּן כָּתֵף

Give us a hand, close your eyes,
Purim is here—let’s forget it all.
Trample your pain underfoot,
Open your mouth and sing out loud:
Aha! Aha! Let’s all go nuts
We’ll figure it out and survive despite hardships.
Aha! Aha! We’ll do as we please
We’ll live, and see miracles and wonders.
