Födelsedag

BS”D

8 November 2014

Kitzi Sheli,

I remember the burden of not knowing you

An imaginary time since the
broad expanse of that kiss —
spreads the universe
to an endless
colour

Bygones and unbeguns
are another affect
since that nonce

Hearts are won on the lakeside
where stars pierce through the warming waters

I can see you then again

The mind went dizzy
Upp och ned

Jerusalem in your eyes

  1. Such a beautiful poem, Rabbi Cahana , it’s David Diskin , from New York , I’m only learning of your struggle now. Our prayers and thoughts are with you. Please let me know how I can contact you more directly. We are always grateful for the light of spirit and the beautiful blessing and dvrei Torah at our wedding. It has always been a beacon and touchstone of the magic and grace. May blessing come to you and your family in your full recovery. With love, David and Faith
