Shared knowledge, or: Wrong direction

A shadorma

reflection
discernment of signs
distant light
fruitless trees
knowledge illuminated
from wrong direction

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

    1. ๐Ÿ’ž thanks, Isadora ๐Ÿ’ž

      BTW, please feel free to call me ‘David’. That is my first name. The word ‘ben’ simply means ‘son of’ in Hebrew; and my father’s name was ‘Alexander’… I created this blog in his memory.

      I know it’s confusing because ‘Ben’ is also a name in English… sorry about that!

      Much love,
      David

      1. Thank you for letting me know, David. Itโ€™s the right way to address someone. An honorable thing to gift your late father. I was raised in an orthodox Jewish neighborhood. I thought I was Jewish when I was a child, there were only 5 non-jewish families. Our was one โ€ฆ Thanks for sharing the love โ€ฆ Isadora
