A Painting and a Poem for Advent

 Advent

ADVENT

Song celestial rolling through Heaven

Riding in peace on the edge of lightening.

In dawn’s gentle lapis shade

When morning star hangs shyly bright

And dampened sagecense fills the air

Like whispered prayers uttered where

There is no night,

Only day.

Earth, herself in hope cries

Words a lonely dreamer hears;

Ancient promises of peace

Now damp as autumn leaves

Raindrop spattered. Bitter tears

Drop in passion from God’s eyes.

Remnants of the tribe stop fighting.

Love is written on their hearts.

Song celestial rolling echoes

Through planets, all, careening frescos;

One age ends another starts.

Peace born on the edge of lightening.
