View From Haifa, 2 (1973)

View from Haifa – 2

by Marc Mangel


The sun has gone

fiery and fiercely down under foaming roar

the moon has risen

while the wind has stilled

the brine is now a mirror

for the orange vain moon

All across the water

irridescent orange floating

icebergs of light

down for the summer

patchwork of orange land

a bridge to walk

a bridge to eternity

and the moon too must fall

or slowly lower itself

at least

from the perch in the sky

each bit of organce


to fade

to sink

becoming lost

in a silent

colorless sea


July 1973
