PG-13Hit the rock, he was told,
and the waters will flow.
It was hot and he was thirsty.
He raised his staff
and brought it down
against the white limestone.
A miracle! Water flowed forth
from a hidden place.

Speak to the rock, he was told,
and the waters will flow.
It was hot and he was thirsty.
Speak? Speak? I don’t speak to rocks.
Again he raised his staff,
again he struck the flank,
not once but twice.
Yet miraculously the waters flowed
and quenched his thirst.

But you, my love, are different.
Not hard and cold,
but soft and warm.
Not unyielding to the touch,
but aching for pleasure.
Not distant and remote,
but close and passionate.
And it is not my erect staff
that brings forth the moisture,
but my gentle strokes
between the cleft of your legs
that open the hidden secret
to Aladdin’s cave of treasure.
And spontaneously, with a shudder of delight,
and the whisper of a name,
the waters pour forth.
Neither salty nor sweet
but with the fragrance of Paradise.
And my thirst for you is barely satisfied.

In Exodus 17:6, the Children of Israel find themselves in the desert without water. Instead of keeping faith in God’s providence they start to complain. Moses was commanded to take his staff and strike the rock. Water poured forth. Almost forty years later a similar situation occurred with the next generation of desert wanderers (Numbers 20:1–13.) This time, however, Moses was told to speak to the rock. Unfortunately, he struck the rock instead. In spite of the issuance of water, he and his brother Aaron were condemned to die in the desert, and not cross into the Promised Land.

The first two stanzas of this poem refer to these events. The third part refers to the phenomenon called female ejaculation in which large quantities of liquid may gush forth from the vaginal tissue around the G-spot (God-spot?). It is not lubrication wetness because of the quantities involved (enough to wet the bed) and it is not urine because of the absence of the telltale smell. Female ejaculation is not well studied although books on the subject are available. From experience, it is a phenomenon that gives exquisite pleasure, and is accessible to most once you know how to let it go and let it flow.

I am a late-comer to poetry especially Jewish-laced love poetry. In the last two years I have written about 50 such poems that I am now trying to publish under the title - The Metaphysics of Love. They are about love - love for women as a metaphor for the Divine love - sometimes employing very erotic images inspired by the Song of Songs and Kabbalistic literature.
