I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino


I sat in front of a tree
and listened

She stood proud
between the edges
of her majestic robe

She also listened
we both waited
gratitude emerged

I walked away nourished
unable to describe
what she gave me

— Abraham Menashe
