Dec 4th – Advent day 6
Updated: Dec 15, 2020
A grey dawn emerges
From the icy obscurity
Of a seemingly interminable night:
Delicate pink hues not strong enough
To breach the dreary hold of winter;
Holding every promise of spring
Beyond failing sight.
Yet, on some as yet unseen horizon
A small star
Pierces the darkness
Heralding the genesis of hope.
