A Christmas poem

A word
lays down its life
by taking on
flesh of black text
on white page
to await the attentive
in whose mind
the letter, springing
to new life,
may become spirit.

The Word became flesh
and laid down his life
in birth
giving life
in giving life up
redefining love.

May that love lead you to the beauty on the far side of pain.

Merry Christmas.
