DJ+Blue+lewI found a word this week
because sometimes new words
(or very old ones)
are needed to trace the tense contours
of a moment
dark and light
the truth lies in the
negative space

I met a wise and gentle teacher of Kabbalah
in the hilltop village of Tzvat
(resting upon the fertile ground
tons of
grapes fed by
a bath of war-blood)
he taught using art
he said
is a blank page

there is nothing simple in this life
except the point of stillness
between inspiration
and expiration


(In honor of an upcoming summer of memories yet to be, and the turning point of recognitions of growth. Happy 8th grade graduation, Sollie!)
