Afternoon Poem, December 15, 2014

Christmas Day

Christmas is morning

bright and joyful.


In a living room strewn with opened boxes

and gifts of every description

A young boy meditates:

This is more than I expected

more than I asked for

and better, in every detail, than I imagined.


This is all for the moment.


Outside of the cave in Bethlehem

old prophets meditated:

This is more than we expected

greater than we ever dared to ask or think

and better, far better, in every detail.


And this is for eternity.
