"Time of the Vineyard", Bimat Kedem, 2002
Poems from the book were broadcast on Kol Israel (The Voice of Israel) and on the Voice of Music.
When poems from the cycle "Time of the Vineyard" first appeared in various magazines they aroused special interest – not only because of their content, their rhythm and the renewed poetic models, but also due to the mystical origins in her poetry, deeply rooted in the entity of the ancient East. Carmela Ben Yishay sticks to her own poetic saying and shapes a personal way of expression special in its voice, a voice that succeeds in covering up the fine line between the rhythmical lyrics and the music, this inner music that we feel/hear when reading her poems.
"…women's veils on the shores of an ancient land
The taste of strong steaming coffee
To you am I coming, to make you a woman of legends
And the galloping of the veiled desert riders
Coming unto their women".
