Christmas week begins
with todays Sabbath shower of Holiness.
(Thank you Abraham Joshua)
A week of memorial reparticipation
in the arrival of the Re-creator,
the birth of Redemption,
a world illuminated by
the extraordinary light
of the Redeemers appearance,
this year given an astrological boost,
Saturn and Jupiter,
blending together in the night sky.
I know! I know!
Nativity, Incarnation, like Sabbath,
granted scant undemythologized validity
in modern theology.
Joy infused into celebration…
Meaning felt in the soul…
Spirit pervading the season…
The yearly chance for Scrooge to mend his ways…
Surely enough Divinely granted reasons
to partake in these
Happy Holy Days.
