Merry Christmas!


Where are the signs
and wonders?
I wonder.

The frost moon hangs
low in the sky –
Jupiter a beacon by its side.
Was it just such a
moon and planet
that tugged the waters
from Mary’s body?
Was she transfixed
(as I was transfixed)
until the hard business
of birth chased the
moon from her mind?
I wonder.

Today I sing
The First Noel and
Silent Night
and imagine Mary and me,
heads tilted back
looking at the moon.
Clamorous murmuring years
separate our gazes.
But it’s the same moon
and we’re thinking about
the same Messiah.
That might be sign
and wonder enough
for me.
