poem for full moon Passover 2005
Passover

Full moon in Scorpio
Sacred Passover night.
A vision of Mother Mary
in the diffused silvery light,
she is Semitic, Iraqui,
ancient and eternal.

And me and Mother Mary,
we are calling down the moon.

All who are hungry come enter and eat,
opening Seder prayer
We pray for those who are hungry in body
and in spirit.
We cry for universal human equity.
We plead that we may treat each other
tenderly, and not rupture our connections.

We seek generational blessings.

And me and Mother Mary,
we are praying down the moon.

I offer wine in blessing for life's sweetness.

Saltwater for life's tears.
I light a single candle.
Dayenu -it is enough for me.

And me and Mother Mary,
we are calling down,
we are praying down,
we are howling down the moon.
