Jacob's Ladder

Jacob's Ladder

The ladder lives
in the Perennial Tradition..
That is..the Tradition of
knowing the Source
which gives birth to
religions and more..

Biblical stories unfold:
Abraham appears as
Isaac springs from
Abraham's openness
ushered by knife and

Abraham's heavenly
presence appeared
as Isaac's separation colors..
This is our earthly place 
in time and space 
with its joy and suffering..

Jacob's angelic ladder
completes the circuit
connecting and reminding
providing a snapshot
of each of us standing
as the ladder
separate and whole..

One named Jesus
held our ladder
proclaiming our identity: 
"on earth as in heaven.."
The Perennial Tradition
expressed once more...
