The Ladder – A Poem

Jacob’s Ladder flowers- Image by Petra Göschel from Pixabay

Uplifting branches, splintering, never straight; life’s ladder

Spindled from trees near the descendants of Jacob’s ladder.

Simple to assemble, complex in usage; tiered Occam’s razor.

Wooden railing, nursery bumpers in the cradle of humanity,

Ever faithful to silent majesty keeping secrets for posterity.

Generations thrive in salvation’s houses on its ringed tiers,

Laying wooden mattress foundations buttressing the years,

Its rungs, pallbearer resurrected dreams from stone wadis,

Transporting archangels of assurance into shadow valleys.
