The Twelfth Day of Christmas (a few hours past)


let me deepen past
the perception of my eyes
into the understanding
of my heart

like the Magi
who bowed to an infant
knowing He was
the Savior King

that i may

follow the light
of Your path
with courage

and know the peace
of Your presence
within me

Matthew 2:9-11 9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
