The abortionist I worked for, he's a very greedy man, a selfish man.

The Poem I Wait For

THE POEM I WAIT FOR

The poem I wait for
Was written long ago,
And can be heard
Again and again,
In the soul
Of each one of us,
When we pray to God
With Love.

The Poem I Waited For All My Life

THE POEM I WAITED FOR/ ALL MY LIFE

The poem I waited for
All my life,
Came to me in old age
And I write it now-
As if Joy and Sadness
Were what
I was always
Meant to be.

Where are the people , Who lived for others

Where are the people

Who lived for others

Cried for them

Laughed with them

Thought

More for others

Less for self

Suffered in pain

Never complained

Encouraged others

Lived for them

Died unknown

The flower there is for me

The flower there is for me
To water its bud
And give it its bloom
The flower there is for me
To raise it from the mud
And save it from its doom
An immortal bud to make it
A fence of earth to break it

The Poems Are Done For Now

THE POEMS ARE DONE FOR NOW

The poems are done for now
I pray they will return again-

This is one, perhaps-
Or perhaps, it’s the sign
That the poems
Never were,
And I only said they were.

Is this a poem?
Am I a writer,
Or not?

The Poems Are Gone For Now

THE POEMS ARE GONE FOR NOW

The poems are gone for now
I am leaving them –

Inside myself
A different music
If it is that-

I do not know
If and when
They will come back.

I do not know
If I ever again
Will express my deepest feeling
In words.

I Look Up At The Sky/And Wait For A Poem

I LOOK UP AT THE SKY/ AND WAIT FOR A POEM

I look up at the sky
And wait for a poem-
The deep dark green of this park surrounds me -
I have been blessed by so much
I have been given so much in my life-

This cool beautiful Yerushalmi night
All I am is thanking God.

The Poem I Waited For All Day

THE POEM I WAITED FOR ALL DAY
THE POEM I WAITED FOR ALL DAY

The Poem I waited for all day
Came only in the evening
Instead of green and gold
Its grey was ready for black.
Life is that way
We wait and wait
For the sudden dawn of beauty
And somewhere else preparing
In another way
The sudden blindness comes.

All Through The Night I Longed For A Poem

ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT I LONGED FOR A POEM

All through the night I longed for a poem
I could not write-
I waited to hear it inside
But I could not write it-
I needed a poem so much
And it did not come-
In the morning I sat down
And began to write-
The words came-
I felt I meant something again
As I write this now
Who I am returns to me.

We Live in the Loneliness Of Ourselves (For Alfred Kazin- Critic)

We live in the loneliness of ourselves (For Alfred Kazin Critic)

We live in the loneliness of ourselves
We try to read
The world as our own.
But most deeply we know
We too are idiosyncracies-
Time passes
Lifetimes of meaning accumulate
But still on our own
Turning the pages
The book we have written
In our reading
Is inexplicable and unknown
Even to ourselves.

Not The One I’m Looking For

If someone was to asked me,
why do you write?
I wouldn’t be able to answer them,
because quite frankly I just don’t know.
I just pick up a pen and paper,
and then the words come tumbling out,
and when I have finished,
I ask myself was that really me?
That is one of the reasons,
I never question what I do,
because there would never be an answer,
at least not the one I’m looking for.

The Love We Have For Our Children

THE LOVE WE HAVE FOR OUR CHILDREN

The Love we have for our children
Goes beyond Reason Logic pride.
Is wild in its depth
And insane in its caring.
It makes each of us understand
What it is to love someone else
More than we love ourselves.
It teaches us
The Need for God
As perhaps
No other love can.
For don’t we pray to God
In our most intense way
When we pray
For God’s protection
Of our children?

The more you’re asking for repose

The more you’re asking for repose,
The more you fear, the more you fear.
The fog is creeping from the fields,
The fog is crawling in your chest.

Sink in the velvet of the night…
Forget the former life you’ve had,
Forget the future life ahead…
The fog is crawling right behind…
One thing in mind –
To sleep, to sleep…
But someone
Terminates your rest.

- Alexander Blok,1910
Trans. by V.Postnikov,2008

The Poem Perpetually Longed For

THE POEM PERPETUALLY LONGED FOR

The poem perpetually longed for
Is like the love
One wanted to spend one’s life with
The love that came and went away
And will never return again.

The Poem Perpetually Longed for
Is like a second love
Never as young as the first
Loved with an old mans love

The Poem Perpetually Longed for
Is like a love held in heart
To the end of one’s days
A love one will be buried with
forever.

The World I Wait For Within Myself/ Is A Poem

THE WORLD I WAIT FOR WITHIN MYSELF/ IS A POEM

The world I wait for within myself
Is a poem
When it comes
I simply write it down-
I am doing this now
As if this were the most natural simple and easy thing in the world-
I dream and you dream and we all dream
And whatever comes to us
Is what we are-
And we are all poems
If we can write it down
Simply and clearly and beautifully
So that when someone else reads it
They believe it.

Is this a poem now?
Perhaps.

The Day I Long For

The day I see the way,
To the light, which is so bright.
To see the ray of white light,
Shinning on me, a smile,
A tear of joy,
And my love on the other side of the way,
With the same feeling of love, safeness, and joy.

The day is mine,
His and my wedding day.
Butterfly’s in our stomachs,
Smiles on plastered faces,
Were happy, and cant see anyone else but each other.

Were happy,
In love,
And loving it.
The day is our wedding day.

The day I long for.

The Truth Is Always For Free! !

To shine forth through the dark with your love,
To shine forth the rain with my love,
To shine forth through the wind with your muse,
And like all the rivers that flow into the seas;
So, teach me only righteous things and,
I will follow you.
Come and touch my heart with your love,
Come and change my heart with your care,
Come and lead me on with the peace of your mind;
For, the truth is always for free! !
And, i need you to guide me on along this narrow path.

The Gift Of Love For God

the gift of love for God
for our fellow human beings
in hopes of each new generation...

is a dream to cherish honour
though reality will test bless
all according to the fatal purity...

of true heart and merit

true teachers seek
to teach much more
than simple facts

techniques
systems
skill ability

all true teachers
wish for all
their students

to gain not
just knowledge
but wisdom...

compassion
a love and respect
for morality...

a love for truth

The love I look for

The love I look for
Could not come from you.
My mind is set to fall
At Peterloo.
But you'ld protect me,
I'd be safe with you.
You could but love me
In the olden way,
With gifts of jewels, children,
Time to play,
Be man to woman
In the olden way.
The love that's love has
Other gifts to bring,
A share in weakness, dreams,
And suffering.
These are the only
Gifts I'd have to bring.
The love I look for
Does not come from you.
I see it dawning in
Deep eyes of blue.
I dare to hope for
Love, but not from you.

And Then You Ordered The Sun To Rise For Me

and so the sun did rise
upon your orders
to shine upon me,

what next? shall you move
the mountains? shall you divide the sea?
shall you fish for the stars and bring them inside a net for me?
shall you seal the blackholes of my heart?
shall you summon all the birds to sing for me?
shall you stop the planets from revolving?

even if you can, you don't have to.
there is only one thing that i ask of you.

write me a poem about 'such sweet sorrow'
that which Romeo said to Juliet on that famous night.

you know it well, your heart once bled.
