Hanukkah

I am re-blogging this lovely poem on SCAN.
I like to SHARE the HAPPINESS of our lives and this poem does it.
Amen and Amen. Thank you, Joan for sharing this with us today.

Jewniquely Myself

in the deepest well of winter
where all is cold and dark
a single flame
a splinter
smiles
and makes a spark

the next night
she arrives again
sweet essence withno name
and a neighbor just across the way
kindles his own flame

the third night mist appears
with prickly nips and bites
two neighbors flicker without fear
and look
a third ignites

on and on throughout the week
and one day more for cheer
like strands of fireflies in the night
each flashing bright and clear

one smile invites another
one hug
and soon there’s eight
expanding circles ’round the world
as they outward radiate

and we hold this moment sacred
as our hearts we dedicate
to Peace
Compassion
acts of Love
–and with latkis we celebrate!

Holding hands with each of you on the fifth night of Hanukkah, Blessings of light and peace to all!
