Meeting Miriam

A good year!
I greet Miriam
a swiss jewish convert,
Did you watch the funeral
of Shimon Peres?
No,
she nodds her head
covered with a bright yellow
scarf,
in a hurry to prepare
for the sabbath,
“President Abbas shook hands
with PM Nethanyahu!”
i reported to Miriam.
“This i have got to see!”
admits Miriam
and seems interested
in the world beyond
the shop and kitchen
and i walk in the sun
thinking of her tall son
my tall sons
and how the sun
shines brighter
in a mad hope
maybe there is
a reason for optimism
maybe there always
is
while we still live
and can believe
in something.
In anything
that makes life
better
than before.
A new year
without fear!
