Poems Celebrating Hanukkah

8th Night
by Adina Edelman 

I stare as eight teardrops of flame
dance to a silent song.
The notes, shy as butterflies,
alight on my soul’s ears.
I lean closer to the flames,
listen to the melody of Israel’s
battles, watch the smoke curl
into breathless air. I mouth
ancient words, keep their sound
bound in my throat lest
my breath blow out
