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.
