12-4 The Sixth Month

In many churches, yesterday celebrated the first Sunday in Advent. Today I’ll post one in that theme.

The Sixth Month


Ponder the miraculous laws of gravity,

Bending space-time’s invisible mesh—

Then in each December’s lyrical Advent,

Hold memory clear and fresh

How eons ago, the Father of lights

Illumined a maiden. A greater miracle:

The Word became flesh.
