i take a trip
to the ruins
of the talmudic era
in search of prescriptions
in ultimate pulls of positive
ancient symbolic meanings.
it is here
i find the hamsa
(semitic root meaning five)
where i feel this incredible
on fire kind of passionate,
wanna throw my hands
in the air with pumped fists.
it is the creator’s protective hand.
these fingers of significant digits
are stroking the keys
in a subtle way
referenced to the sign of pisces
with an aquamarine eye
in metaphors with all the great fish
to thwart the evil eye.
these hands
are like double agents.
you can’t possibly imagine
how one can find
happiness, wealth and power
in a silent retreat to make me stand tall.
