The Demon Dance

Lech Lecha - The Demon Dance
a perfect parsha for Samhain

מֵאוּר כַּשְׂדִּים
me'aur Chasdim ... Bereshit 15:7

neither dark nor light
the torah of night

woman hides
wholy creative power

questions unspoken, who knows
yes and no

meaning, empty of meaning

a paradox
one whole inclination

pure flames
guard the gate to the demon dance

where lilith laughs
with absolute delight

a wild majesty
in wholy motion

secrets rest
and no angel understands



My original poem republished here as commentary for Lech Lecha, was originally published on my now closed geocities website, Walking On Fire (1996-2009).
