Advent

Advent

Like waiting for the return
Of light
The longest day
Comes first
Like waiting for the return
Of Love
After healing
Has its way
Like waiting for the return
Of peace
The despairing
Come seeking solace; release.

You inch your way
Back into light
Back into love
Back into sight
Like the sun on a winter’s day
Certain of its warmth
When the cold persists
The draft wind cannot
Prevent its shining.

Winter solstice
Your soul or mine
Welcome the darkness
For soon there will
Be time
To shine
Again.
Like the return
Of Christ.
Let all lamps be full
And burning.
