Doug Jones Won in Alabama on Chanukah


First night of Chanukah

light appears

where you didn’t expect it

small hero defeats impossible enemy

one of the stories we all like best

a man who fought

the Ku Klux Klan he didn’t have

a chance he won and the light we know

is there is suddenly right there

a  miracle that has to do with hard work

and hope and so many who wanted

miracles to happen i

n the state of Alabama

last night.


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. Esther, I lurk around your poems daily…but today….OVER THE TOP!
    Chanukah and Doug Jones – what a concept! I’ve passed it around…..Thanks…
