Can we appreciate ourselves and our competitors in good humor
and based upon the same set of values, i.e. The Ten Commandments?


Michael Alan Ross uses his creative poetry, prose, and lyrics to meet such a challenge.


Mr. Ross, author of The Ten Commandments Guidebook (BostonWalks Publishers, 2004) and BostonWalks' The Jewish Friendship Trail Guidebook - 6 Self-guided Jewish History Walk Tours of Downtown Boston (BostonWalks Publishers, 2003), here below offers an example, of his original, poem, a poetic blessing, a snow metaphor about oneness and God, In Awe:








In Awe!

Michael Alan Ross 2004-2007. All rights reserved.




Bless God,
The spirit of our universe,
Who gives us responsibility,
Teaches us to appreciate:


Snow.


Light and heavy snow,
White and blue snow,
Wet and powder snow,
Little and big flakes,
Cold and frozen snow
Snow piles and drifts,
Snow-covered everything,
Featureless opaqueness,
With all colors within,
Like oneness.



Michael Alan Ross 2004-2007. All rights reserved.
