שְׁאָר‎‎

Isaiah 11:16
There will be a highway leading out of Assyria for the remnant of the people that is left, just as there was for Israel when it came up out of Egypt.

For Jen who summoned us with her “Up”

Hunkered down in this frigid forest of defeat
We cling to the last vestigages
Of light and warmth trying to remember
Who we once were.

What with the wailing and gnashing of teeth
(Not to mention the rending of garments)
We have forgotten the power of the Left Behind-
The holy remnant who diffuses the Light.

“Up with you!” comes the call.
Retrieving the pieces of our cast off garments
We rise. We begin.
