Christmas Glow?


Warm and peaceful

Sweet and hopeful

Dreams abound on certain days

Will they wither?

Will they prosper?

Is it up to us to say?


Is the Star of stars a signpost?

Will we learn to give or take?


Time has never worked to help us.


An eternal question drifts,

In and out, through mind and heart.


Wise men seek the truth in vain.


Still, we hope and seek and ponder

Is the riddle to remain?

Maybe it is wrong to search

Into trouble and distress.


Truths and myths cannot survive

Cold and distant probes and doubts.


Stop your anguish and be calm.

Let the yuletide end your quest
