Ascent

 

My son descends – I cannot – measureless –

the time between – a blossoming – a mirror –

day and night – a youth revisited –

identity – a shadow – see – a ladder –

God enthroned – the angels – rising – falling –

stone – a pillow – generations – light –

a finch at dawn – ascending as it calls –

a dream – what is within a world – a kite –

the heavenly – a thread – the closeness of

eternity – a silent stone – an altar –

dusty signature – unseen – beloved –

Isaac – in his father – heaven saw –

but Jacob feared – set up the stone – poured oil –

within descent – ascent – a seed in soil.
