The Way Up [a #poem]

the way up
© rabbi menachem creditor
for sam

you might think these
tears of descent
and yet, as they fall
everything ascends

raw sounds pierce the air
beyond and before words
quiet trembling,
familiar disequilibrium,
a promise made once again...

new moment
new possibilities
new life

finding a new perch
made easier
with each shed hot droplet.
