Welcoming Queer Ancestors to the Sukkah

We welcome our ancestors,
historical, mythical, fantastical:
 
Ruth and Naomi
David and Jonathan
Emma Goldman, Harvey Milk
Wonder Woman, Man of Steel
Bachelor uncles, maiden aunts
 
We welcome the ones who came before,
Whose strength, humor, compassion
showed us what was possible,
helped us imagine who we could become,
and loved us into our selves.
 
As they join us in this, our temporary shelter,
the harvest moon illuminates our faces.
Space collapses into one moment
as we dance through time in all directions.
