About the Book

Paradise Collectors is a 75 page compilation of Jewish themed poetry, featuring poems inspired by Judaism, Jewish holidays, and Jewish practice from D.L. Lang’s previous books and a few new additions. Includes “Turning” previously published on ReformJudaism.org, “Prayer for the Shomrim” previously published in the Jewish Journal of Los Angeles, and “Is” previously published in the Marin Poetry Center anthology Vol 21, and winner of 3rd place at the 2019 Solano County Fair. This collection grew out of my building a set for a synagogue reading in Napa.

The title comes from a quote I read in May 2018:

“Paradise is scattered over the whole earth and that is why it has become so unrecognizable.” — Novalis

It struck me and others as a very Kabbalistic quote. I wrote the title poem Paradise Collectors after reading that quote in a horoscope.

We are paradise collectors
and one day,
we shall find it.
