Yesterday 14 Elul 5780 September 3 2020 Was The Hottest Temperature- Measured Day We Have Ever Known In Jerusalem

Poem By Shalom Freedman

Yesterday was the hottest day we have ever known
Today may be hotter
The haze and heat are ugly and almost impossible to bear
The threat of coronavirus is present also
These seem to be the worst the most uncomfortable days
We have ever had

But it could be far worse
There could be war and burning of the cities
Discomfort and stress are not violent bloody death

This is a very hard time
But there will be in some days
A cooler time
And perhaps the virus will also decline

It is difficult now
But not the worst
And let us pray we do not get to an even worse horror

I am sorry for your pain your discomfort your horror. Yah Global warming is real for real and science says so but good ol' Trump thinks its a hoax. Great poem. Keep em rolling so we know how you are doing.

I wanted poems
Because they helped me feel more alive
They gave me an intensity

Nothing Tells Me How To Begin Again

Nothing tells me how to begin again
Or even how to try

And how can I expect to do at the age of seventy- five?

I Must Continue To Write

There will always be another poem
And with that poem- hope
However absurd-
So even if I despair
