Response to Six Feet Under (3:4)

Response to Six Feet Under (3:4)
(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditor

It is in the absences that the soul emerges.
It is precisely that gap that pulls me out.
pause

When the rhythm breaks,
when the air quivers,
the eye widens
shock

How to cultivate this rupture,
this ritual pause,
honesty.
