Sudden light
flares in the eastern sky.

Bright clouds burst
and consume the void
with glory.

The newborn child,
wrinkled and pink, warms
in his mother’s embrace

and waits for the stunned world
to exhale.

  1. I love the way you've made that bright burst of light and the birth of a child coincide. It seems to be a very good omen. I think you are referring to the birth of Jesus Christ. Merry Christmas!
