Peace in the Forest

advent poem

“Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.” —Matthew 2:2

 

Today I’m pondering God’s global influence to draw to himself all whose hearts are prepared. Bringing peace to those who recognize their need and have made him room.

To my surprise a poem emerged.

 

prepare the way! shouts Fall

with a thunderclap

then

departing on a mighty gust

shakes the forested lands

lays them bare

honest

 

the show is over

 

now

into a bereft and shadowless forest

winter arrives

barefoot

like a humble prince

bearing gifts
