claim

Christmas Day - Year B

beginning with covered depth
a word breaks swirling waters apart
for room for isle and continent

this becomes this
that becomes that
all the while related

sparks fly between
this and that
light shines brighter

each part is and reflects
a lightening
and light shines

darkness threatens
each part to cease
its identity

no threat is large enough
to close down a hope
that lives in us

we may falter from time to time
attempting to make meaning
but light is built in

sometimes we miss opportunities
to witness to this light
to testify to larger lessons.

to claim one’s own
to make a choice
for flesh made alive

there is no darkness
large enough to hide
a light for everyone

grace upon grace
we claim our place
in time and space
