Seasons of the Moon Poetry


It's only a silent night.
It's only an electric glow
of winking, twinkling little stars
darkening your home.

But one little flask of oil ignored
in the florescent screaming

One little point of light undimmed
in all the dreaming

Shines on in every heart
in the holy of holy places,
untouched, undimmed, unsullied,
outshining the biggest, brightest
Chanukah bush.
