A Friend Wrote Me From Israel Today (COVID)

Good friend wrote from Israel today

to ask how we  are.   Israel, he said, absolutely

impossible country

wonderful people

wonderful vegetables

despite their terrible government.

Just like the United States

without the wonderful

vegetables, he said.

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.


  1. After reading you site daily for a while, I think you’re on to something.
    The form, style, content become very powerful. You’ve made me think again about poetry. I didn’t expect this at first from reading your work, but there you are! I’m inspired….again. Thank you


  2. I can’t remember but probably on one of my art or literary sites. And because poetry of all sorts has meant so much to me all of my life I decided to check you out. I send on your site to the few others who also know the necessity of Poetry. If I remember where I “found” you I will let you know because more people should know what you do.
    Again, thank you for doing this. How did you decide to do this? Or maybe you’re famous and I didn’t know. Stay safe wherever you are.
