One Year Later
(or 'Looking Forward to Having Less to Write')
(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditor

I sit in Jerusalem,
One Year Later.
One year after
bombs, sirens, shelters
the sky feels free of weaponry
faces seem clear of stress.

Yes, sky and faces know better,
but, in this moment,
even the sun feels happier.
