My response to Mary’s prompt on dVerse–to write about light–was a bit challenging, so today I’d light to bring a bit more lightness of spirit to Monday Meanderings. The title of this poem comes from a Christmas album by Enya–a quite beautiful album.

i.

white rose in winter

miracles we don’t expect

our God comes to earth

ii.

silent star-filled night

newborn hope envelopes earth

flurries of pure joy

iii. 

christmas eve arrives

children with eyes wide-open

stars and midnight blue

Most likely I will cut way back on posts during the next few weeks that are filled with so many activities. Enjoy this time of preparation and giving. Enjoy your families…the best gift of all.

    smiles…it’s cool to see the joy and wonder in the eyes of little kids during the holidays…. newborn hope envelopes earth…was the part that brought it home for me… it’s the hope that touches me most each and every year..

    This is beautiful, Victoria. My favorite is the one about Christmas Eve…with children with wide open eyes. No greater joy than to see Christmas through the eyes of children. And each year I live I am more and more awed by that newborn hope!
