Homesickness

by Dacious Kasoka

How I yearn for Jerusalem
that "Beulah Land" 
spick-and-span, 
of the days that never
smooch the dark,
of the sugariness taste of 
the life-bearing berries.
I watch from my window pane;
the nearness of the wild blue
yonder, as nights die 
and morning tides wither away.
