Leaving “Time”

GingerbyAndrewVanDerWerwe

sculpted in sand by Andrew Van der Wehre

 

tide washes grains of sand

as numerous as the stars

until Ginger leaves time

!

enters eternity

!

gets the picture

of infinite glory

and its mystery!

ears in the grass

whose ears are these?

this morning these ears appeared to me in the grass (like those above)

 

but different,

less oval,

more triangular,

a new-born in the Spring:

a furry, flexible, suckling, cooing babe.

Aura of Olive Trees

WaldmanInIsrael

painting by Niel Waldman

.

sometimes the olives smile:

others-weep;

.

sometimes they feel the kiss

of sunshine’s lips:

others-bites;

.

sometimes they sway

with wind’s soft shove:

others-tremble to their roots.

.

finally, they drop their olives

to our upturned hands:

lift their skirts and curtsy.

Violet Overtones

byWaldman

painting in process by Niel Waldman

.

earth red

sky blue

makes you:

God the Creator

God of Wind

Mover of Seeds

King of Atmosphere

Fertility Lord

Grace us from Above

knife

knife to know you

“knife to know you”

.

cut a kiwi today

pared the skin

removed the stem

sliced the meat

imbibed the seeds

cherished the green jewel

softness and hard knife cured
