A possibility: advent, Days 8 &9

this season of dark,

brings disorientation,

waking, sleeping,

sleeping, waking

with mourning,

when Christmas too early

denying hunger

denying emptiness

denying sorrow in our souls,

demands smiles

don’t bring Christmas too early,


wait to celebrate,

new life,

for new life

begins in the dark…

a seed

a spark,

a possibility …
