Christmas Glow?

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?

*

An eternal question drifts

In and out

Through mind and heart.

*

Wise men seek the truth in vain.

*

Time will never work or favour

Those, who question

Where or when

Still, we hope and raise and ponder

Riddles that we’ll never crack

*

Truths and myths cannot endure

Cold and distant probes and prods.

*

Maybe it is wrong

To shun

Every trouble and affliction.

*

Stop your anguish and be quiet

Let the yuletide end your quest

Star of Stars
