Re’eh

“See, I set before you this day, a blessing and a curse. Choose blessing.”

 

It’s “Water Cooler Wednesday”,
 
In this, the second week
 
Of your retirement.
 
Facing you across the altar that is our table,
 
In our downsized 1 bedroom hipster condo.

 
You with pen,
 
Me, facing type,
 
Having sung ourselves closer,
 
We settle into writing.
 
And, between the silence,
 
Of my own heart beating, 
 
A poem hums me back,
 
Back to you. 
 
Sofer.
