5768-L'Shana Tova [Sep. 14th, 2007|11:13 pm]
I have asked forgiveness for the cracked cup of angry words,
and the moon, thin shards of that cup is just right for cutting
out the chaotic rage of those words and making new ones
for a new year.

I have gone to the window, looking for
that young moon which has come and gone;
but left a memory so strong:
a woman wearing perfume
who has come into the room and departed.

Were I to ask forgiveness for all of the angry words I've thought or spoken I'd need a much longer lifetime!

I am glad your perfume is still here!

it wasn't my perfume, nor ABOUT me, but a relationship i was involved in and am griefing deeply over the loss of. i appreciate yr kind words. i am inconsolable at the moment, but that doesn't mean i don't feel the kindness of people like you, alan.

PS the editor on the peace book laughed to me that she thought she'd have the book out by veterans day, which i thought was perfect. i will try to remember to keep you posted.
