The Power of the Light

The twinkling lights still hang,

waiting to be packed up,

back to their dark boxes, in basements everywhere.

The New Year has slunk in,

the Bethlehem story hovers hoping

to change hearts,

revive the weary poised to drop

but the waiting darkness pulls

many away from the light

and the power of the choice they’ve had all along.

One thought on “The Power of the Light

  1. One of my “crusades” is to have people step away from the busyness of the Christmas season to intentionally focus on that hope-giving light from the manger/Bethlehem star.
    Beautiful rendition of this conundrum. Blessings!
