Rabbi Nachman’s Prayer: 
Master of the universe, grant me the ability to be alone; May it be my custom to go outdoors each day, Among the trees and the grass, Among all growing things;
And, there may I be alone to enter into prayer. There I may express all that is in my heart Talking to you, the one to whom I belong.

Agave, shot for this week's "Green" theme 
for 52 Frames, on-line photo group.

While I was editing/cropping Agave, 
I had a visceral jolt, 
and also suddenly realized for first time 
that my photo looked like my mother's, obm, art,
all green (which I truly couldn't stand) 
agave and leaves painting 
from 50-60 years ago. 

Was mostly hanging on walls of our NY home, now gone,
over the green upholstered, down feather couch
which I wasn't allowed to sit on.
(No plastic covering!)

I still have a metal serving tray
with Mom's painted green agave
and her poem written on tray back. 
(Turn over the tray.)

Shocking that I had no idea
I was so connected to Mom from so long ago. 
She, too, before me, was also
a poet, photographer, multi-dimensional artist, and a gardener,
 but Mom died young, 49 years old, over 44 years ago.

Mom had worked WW II in the Pentagon,
and in the aftermath of the Holocaust,
the only religion statement I heard growing up,
Mom would quietly say out loud,
"How can there be a G*d?"

Maybe Mom is helping G*d to paint the sunrise...


POEM ON PAINTED TRAY

"In the hour of False Dawn
The Beasts of Burden appear
Dun-Colored, one with the earth
Silhouetted dimly against the promise
Of a rising sun."

- Libby M. Melton

The green couch-- I trucked from NY to Maryland to cousins, Jolkovsky, for them to enjoy. - Joy
