My Friend Cynthia Came Back From Jordan

A few times a year she’s a volunteer dentist

She’s back from Jordan now. In Jordan the Syrians were bombing

45,000 Syrians seeking refugee status 45,000 children and women and men.

Israel is dropping food and tents and supplies

for Syrians from the Golan Heights.

When we tell a story we want heroes and villains

reasons we can all understand. When

we tell a story we want to know why.  In the beginning

there was darkness, and then, maybe later,

there was light.


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. It’s a sad situation in Syria. As much as I liked Obama he dropped the ball and now the leader in the white house has removed any interest and handed it over to the Russians. Very scary. Good words to think about as always Esther.
