Converted to Love: A Valentine’s Day Dream Poem

IMG_3246Jewish Girl Takes Communion

God says I can. So I do.

“The wafer is the body

Of love. The wine

Its desire.” I eat

This body. I drink

This blood. My heart

Is thus converted.

    Hi Tzivia,
    I love this poem, thank you….it is everything I love about poetry and dreaming: unusual, simply tender and complexly powerful. At the Natural Spirituality conference I went to last weekend, I had the opportunity to write a French pantoum based on a dream and visualization I had. Wow. Dreams and poetry together, it doesn’t get any better than that.

    Lovely dreaming,
