talking with stones
by Elizabeth Jill




The oceans will weep
forever forever forever
eternal
the sky will reflect
forever forever forever
infernal
the desert will burn
forever forever forever
unwinding
the paths of our past
forever forever forever
returning

"In a country of madness,
people will bother you less
if you are crazy."

Aziz Shihab

Author's Note: I remember when I first met Aziz. He lived behind newspapers and books, and had the wryest humor which always made complete sense. And still does. And always will. Aziz passed away Monday, October 22, 2007. Father of my beloved friend Naomi, he gave me advice in one brief sentence filled with humor and truth. Yes, the one under the picture of the mural poem. In his recent book, Does the Land Remember Me?, he explains how he came to this observation. I will carry his wholesome beloved wink with me forever. Shalom indeed. Jill






I am listening to November Rain and Naomi.

what you *do* reaches into forever... you from your hidden nest spring with soft night wings flapping, stirring remembrance, bring alive the day, as alive the night with... your fervent yes, your acts of creative bold bliss with all you hold dear... I feel it always and it is all we can do... and it is so much, so much stronger than the "madness"... your beautiful "crazy" love. wonderful mural.
