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
