Muse Of Fire - Poem by gershon hepner

The muse of fire
came from the bush that, burning
had startled him, while turning
to inquire
induced the flame
to burn without consuming.
“How odd, ”
he thought, without assuming
it was the Name
of God.

A voice declared:
“I am, indeed, I am,
and you,
a shepherd of the lamb,
must be prepared,
to do
My bidding, you
must teach the world My law.”
He could,
explaining what he saw,
his point of view,
and would.

The bush he saw,
the muse within the flame
that spoke,
revealed to him the Name,
and he in awe

    A change in your style (according to the works of yours that I have read) here, Gersh...but I was hooked from start to finish. Send me your Hebrew bible in verse once you've finished it, will you? Gina. (Report) Reply

    Well done Gershon you have opened my eyes to a new way of looking at a biblical event.
