1991 Christmas Poem

Before He lit the skies
The Light of the World
Burned brightly
In the Heavenly Temple
And there its light
Gave Testimony
That it should
Shine on those in dark places
Though sun filled the day
Though moon brought brightness
Though stars guided over the distance
They did not touch the Heart
It took the light
Hidden in a baby’s cheek
Brought forth in a young man’s wisdom
Harvested upon a cross
To reach and hold
The farthest corner
Of the darkest heart
To bring it to light

- 8 September 1991
