'Anat's Ecstasy' by Jacob Rabinowitz

by Jacob Rabinowitz

Anat sings out
       the will of Yahweh,
a goddess and a prophet
       of God to the gods,
stamping out dances
       on Zion's brink
       the language of trees,
what pebbles remember,
       what rocks recall,
the windy whisper
       of sky to earth,
how ocean feels
       when she mirrors back stars,
able to read
       what lightning writes,
what thunder mutters,
       what no man knows.
