Beyond the ridiculous: a Christmas poem

20131211-080050.jpg

He
sent a star
not a
word
from the wise man
but a sign from the
heavens
from the only place
only
One
is capable of lasso-ing
fire

He
sent a star
single
certain
bright

but we must look
up
on bended knee
up
out of our ridiculous view
of our miry flatlands
to see the
illumination
of

Truth

Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” (Matthew 2:2 NIV)
