Tomorrow, or: Never say never

A Shadorma

most of Israel
was on strike;
leaving work,
I passed parents and little
children protesting

this morning,
despite warm sunshine
and soft breeze
wafting through
my window, I feel worried, 
wary and worn out


For Tanka Tuesday, Colleen has prompted us to write syllabic poems inspired by the view outside our windows.

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. These days, it’s difficult to find peace. Your beautiful captures the weight of discontent. Well done, David. I just hope we all can breathe freely someday soon. 💙
