poem: and now it is Christmas ‘time’

poem: and now it is Christmas ‘time’

time slows
and deepens
at Christmas

from 40 days
of waiting

to the coming of the
Universal Cosmic Christ child
God with us Emmanuel

time now comes to
its eternal

filled with awe
and reverence in
this ever-present moment

standing in the silent
snow covered field
in bleak mid-Winter

stripped of adornment
travelers weary
in the cold and mud

only the
angels, shepherds, and magi
will witness this New Day

that Heaven and its Love
reign down on me and us all
then, now, and evermore
