Three Poems of Rivka Miriam

January 10, 2012


IN THE BEGINNING // Rivka Miryam

In the beginning God created

the heavens that really are not

and the earth that wants to touch them.

In the beginning God created

threads stretched between them

between the heavens that really are not

and the earth crying out.

And the man he created

the man who is a prayer and a thread

touches that which is not

with a touch of softness and light.

 

***

 

BEYOND THIS

I bumped into the cat that came from beyond all this.

It was so dead it crossed its death and was alive again.

Here, it howls. What does it wish to say that I haven’t heard.
