      Poetry Submission: CREATIVE SPARK - Chanukah fires


      CREATIVE SPARK

      by charlene rae solomon

      i am burned
      by the first chanuka flame
      7 nites of holocaust still
      lit by a shimmering shamos
       forbidden to extinguish prematurely, it must melt me as a furnace does dross
      and make me as fine pure gold as His Temple
      i beg for help from mine enemies
      self-sufficiency is illusion
      pain is too real
      G-d is my only Hope
      so soon a phoenix risen resurrection
      from creation's/destruction's ashes
      a new art dedicated to rebirth
      and Heavenly grace grants this New Beginning
      rain falls violently
      putting out my fire thru drenching
      quenching my thirst
      i will plant a tree
       for Thee
