I want everyone to enjoy some of my favorite poems from my own hard cover book
"A Backpack Of Milestones"
by Barbara (Morris Fischer) Binstock

        The biggest milestone, a prophetic poem written in
        my youth, meeting and marrying Marc Binstock
"further on along the path...
Somewhere in the musky woods of autumn,
with our values thickly wrapped
in colored layers of experience."

Life-Phase 2

A zephyr dancing through the trees tonight
whispered that we'd meet, unchained;
further on along the path

Somewhere in the musky woods of autumn,
with our values thickly wrapped
in colored layers of experience...

And you'll swing me once around again
and watch me waltz dizzily
over every winding path untried.

What miles of woodland lie in newness
waiting for my errant feet!

O' swing me once around again...
and see the other side of me!

COMING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS

No expanse of time can change
Coming home on Christmas Eve

as darkness drifts across a snowy sky
and windows down the country lanes are lit
in festive unity.

A lone star rises
guiding on its same familiar path
above the families joined at firesides
where ancient stories still are told
passed the joyous caroling while centuries unfold.

Christmas Eve will never change
by lack of pine or mistletoe
or custom's ever-shifting mode,
not when arms so filled with longing
once again are coming home.

ENVY

Please don't wish the sun would drift
to someone else's path
leaving me in cool shadows.

Don't begrudge the lights
that twinkle in my eyes
like sunlight through a forest.

What you see is my flimsy facade...
my candle
on this dark and endless road.

My hands are jeweled to hide the scars
while behind me I hide a backpack
heavy with milestones.

FROM PERFORMANCES AT WHITMAN BIRTHPLACE

 




To D. M. M.

 Upon the endless journey road, who knew we'd meet
 another soul beyond expectancy?
 Perhaps an angel made that link to
 finalize our destiny.
 
 All the while my fingers do not trace
 the lines that form your manly face
 and ears not let to shiver to your whisper,
 I sense your presence in the air.
 
 The words your eloquence chose for me
 proved how deeply you did care.
 
 And for this time that we must be apart
 I have your words, a warming glow
 like sunshine in my heart.
 


BOUQUET OF LOVE

What did we know
of flowers then?
We thought,
"How grand this first bud
...so thin stemmed."  

This was spring
and many rains would come.
After every rain
a new shoot sprung,
till now.  

Today this bush is full
and strong against the winds
And love...
Your flowers are
a whole bouquet of years.
