This week, we are thrilled to present one poem and three visual artworks by Sivan Lavie. Sivan’s poetry is packed with imagery and unexpected metaphors, injecting both curiosity and humor into spiritual subject matter. With an emphasis on bright colors and geometric shapes, Sivan’s artwork triggers a nostalgia for childhood, and the pure sense of naivety inherent in it.
God sits under my thumb & Waits.
– Sivan Lavie
He sits there while the storms come & pass
He sits there, squatting in the shade
Sitting inside eyes of strangers and
Dreamers and drawers of bathrooms
God sits under cotton balls
And in the shadow of big fig trees
And laughs between the rustling leaves
God stirs slow,
Soft porridge in your heart
And moves the peaks of time
Stretching you out like a dough
Elastic armed monkey that you are
Standing right right here
And yet forever and ever expanding
Into the salt & pepper dance of the universe.
