all together now

the stillness of the house
broken by the porch door
sliding open..
and then closed again
with muted thud..
he enters the chilly sukah
early morning mist..
they lay there...waiting
all year...
the lulav proud and upright
model citizen...
in the morning chill..
brings the hadas...
with his perfectly coifed..
green leavery..close to him..
and then...reaches out..
to the unruly..arava...
the one with no wisdom..
and no deeds..
wild leaves..
and pulls him close..
on his other side..
today...they see...
how..essential he is
huddled together..warm..
even the tzadik the Esrog...
inches closer....
as the sun rises..
and the rays..line through the slats..
and all of them together...
are lifted...and become..
one complete
