The Art of Tea and Poetry

The Lioness that Dwells Within
A feline dwells in your caverns of consciousness / Dauntless and determined her insignias of strength / Landscapes withered by winds of shallowness / Embrace her and harrow Man's bad…
Annals of Abraham
Pregnant night aborts the dawn / Poxing the earth below / Festering fields of human hate / Drown reason in irrational throe Hissing hostility pierces the sky / Scattering mo…
Molecules of Moments ... A Poetry in Pieces
Day Tresses of ivory tease the air as / soliloquies of song woo whimsical winds / Moments mold into statues of light while / waxing crystals of cream take fligh…
A Sighing Sonnet
Syllables plunge into an ancient songbook / Octaves and sestets of obsessive love / Perusing Petrarch's Canzoniere / Iambic portrayals of Laura de Noves Shakespeare loves …
The Bonsai Tree
In an Arboretum of towering trees / The major attraction is the topiary / Visitors flock to this botanical art / Deaf to the tidings of twisted bark Dwarfed gnarled confined an…

Death of a Dove

A metal rain falls and punctures the morning
Dialogues of dread smother the breeze
Metalliferous clouds imprison the sunlight
Frightened faces carve the air with their screams

Hot flashes of terror nightmare the moment
Eagle and Hawk devour the dove
An olive tree weeps over the loss of her herald
While two nations beg mercy from political thugs

Animosity and enmity spread like wildfire
Igniting minds to wasteful war
Missiles and canons pierce the flesh of a country
Wounding the land they are both fighting for



תרגום: ירדן ורדי

גשם ברזל יורד, מפלח את הבוקר
דיאלוגים של אימה חונקים את משב הרוח
עננים מתכתיים כולאים את אור השמש
פנים מפוחדות צורחות באויר הפתוח

הבזקים של אימה רודפים את הרגע
בז ונץ טורפים חיש מהר את היונה
עץ הזית מתאבל על אובדן השליח
בעוד שני עמים מתחננים לבריוני האומה

עויינות מתפשטת כמו אש בשדה בור
מציתה מלחמה בלבבות אנשים
תותחים נוגסים בבשרה של מולדת
פוצעים את הארץ עליה שניהם נלחמים


A Diligent Dawn
Shards of a broken wine goblet / Drift on the surface of withering waves / Dawn dethrones the waning night / Saffroned fingers arouse a day In nakedness she wears her loss / Hot flashes heat hormonal strife / Fermented tears and sweated dew / Awa…
Molecules of Moments... A Poetry in Pieces
Night / a weeping willow of water wails / a worried wind stumbles into / a lonely acacia dovening in the desert / a compassionate river runs recklessly / over brooding banks and stagnant stones / startled stars quiver and shiver nervously / l…
Lionhearted
A lion dwells in your sentient savanna / Persistence and purpose his badges of strength / Urban forests breed banality and bromide / Seize him and purge Man of his shallow decent Iron rods of conformity rust perception / Towers of compliance stunt natu…
The Lioness that Dwells Within
A feline dwells in your caverns of consciousness / Dauntless and determined her insignias of strength / Landscapes withered by winds of shallowness / Embrace her and harrow Man's badlands of descent Rocks of conformity will bruise perception / Caves of…
Desert Storm
Dust clouds of pain bring bruising rains / crumbling rocks mock human form / Kneeling in searing sands / shackled to shadows / a captive awaits his fate / in damning soundlessness / Emptiness silences the land - / earth to earth / / A fac…
