Clean Slate

The longest night is past.NativityFinal2015

Within its dark, a frightening
place to be, I opened
my eyes to face my frailty.
There I see your Light,
growing gently
with steady breath,
never to be extinguished
by my uncertainty.

And again, You come to me,
take me by the hand anew,
warm it with yours,
remind me of Refuge,
a place where I once more
learn to stand, accept
my mistakes, walk
lightly, shine of me.

When I become that
child, crying under a
star so bright three
could not help but follow,
we are newly Oned,
at the beginning,
slate wiped clean.

In this growing Dawn
I see I am the gift given,
You the Reminder.
I am the Beloved quartering
the Light, a precious
vessel empowered
by Boundless Devotion.

I am One with You,
let us shine together.

Merry Christmas.
Happy birthday.

Amen. Amen. Amen.
