Christmas-2

A glimspe of the Shawnee Neighborhood

Psalms of Christmas 

Every moment is a revelation
Placed behind the scrim of what one sees.
In every unremarkable sensation,
Poised to dance, some truth awaits a breeze.
How might one then step behind the veil,
Alive in ways one was not meant to live?
None can bear such beauty long, nor fail,
Yet yearning, to revere what grace might give. 

Each year again the gifts are given gladly,
Perhaps because one wants to be a gift.
In goods there can be good, yet sometimes, sadly,
People get the thing but not the drift.
How could the wise men come without a token,
A gift to give the child, new born a king?
Nor could their words speak as their gifts had spoken,
Yielding love incarnate in a thing.



Midnight miracles make quiet mornings.
E
ven God sleeps peaceful on the breast.
R
estless nights result in dreamy dawnings,
R
evelations ripe for sunlit rest.
Y
ears of love lie drowsy, slug-a-bed.
C
hoices seem to snuggle, sleeping in.
H
oliness is happiness instead,
R
ich in all that gathers grace within.
I
n love of God or man, the Earth must turn.
S
ongs of angels come in troubled times.
T
he miracle of witness one must earn,
M
oving to transfigure one's own crimes.
A
s faith and love require restful sleep,
So, too, must they their midnight vigils keep.
