My yearn

Dear Mom,
I speak with you every day.
I know you are in another dimension, but life is real.
How are you? How is the culture in Paradise?
In this world there is epidemic.
Please , send me the tonic that you made from
Jasmine flowers to eliminate the epidemic.
Our daughter is growing up.
When do you returning to
my dimension?

Amazing Journey

The voice called me:
“Go visit your Mommy in another dimension.
I prepared my laser bicycle.
I came to Paradise.
I saw my Mommy caring for the jasmine bush.
I embraced her.
She gave me Nectar from Jasmine.
We spoke about the life and culture.
She took me to see my Grandmother Sylvia and my
Grandfather Machluf. We met my Uncle Avishai and his wife Terenza.
We played domino with happiness and joy.
In the evening we went to listen to the liturgical poet David Riachi .
He remembered me from Beer-Sheva when I was 5 years old, and shook his hand when he came to sing in the synagogue Rabbi Hai Tayeb( NOt Dead)*.
He devoted to me a song and invited me to read one of my poems.
He spoke with me and I told him about the cultural activity in Israel and in the world.
The angel appeared and told me:” The time of your visit is over.”
I kissed all my family and returned to our small world.

*The Rabbi performed major miracles, so people didn’t believe that he died.
