Remembrance In a time not So long before mine The smoke of spirits Bent but unbroken Choked the sky in acrid clouds Look, They said There are your parents, your children Your brothers and sisters They said You will vanish Wiped from memory But memory remains And so do You Shalom, my friends, My brothers, my sisters Shalom.
About this piece: Today (April 20th) was on my calendar as Holocaust Remembrance Day in Israel. My bad. Remembrance Day was actually last week. Today is Israel's Independence Day. So I'm remembering late it seems. Which is okay, I think. My feeling is that this remembrance ought to be worldwide. Today, tomorrow, and all tomorrows to come.
