journey to [a #poem

© rabbi menachem creditor

listen so well,
stretch my soul
into her quivering mouth
for meaning

trying, trying, hoping,
desperate to discern

what is she saying?
what needs to be heard?

how can I be in a place
I don’t understand?

how did we get here?

Never mind that.
We’re here.

Where do we go now?
Go. Go to yourselves
to a land that I will show you


leave behind what I know,
the land I thought I knew
journey to…
