Maverick


 

 

The modern-day lamb in stripes and stars

 

Lay in sacrifice of what should be.

 

He re-ignites the paschal-candle of brotherhood

 

and kindness in a country so dark.

 

darken from the light of goodness.

 

He poured from the receptacle of time,

 

and honor and devotion.

 

He lays the gauntlet of ‘moving-on’

 

In hopes others will follow.

Christmas Day


Dark and bleak the days become

Mother and child still are one.

They seek a shelter for the night

against the cold weather’s fright

A shed, a stable they find by grace

In the night their stay finds pace

to labor pains inside the shed

Labor and love defies world’s dread

where infant cries break the sounds

all kings and shepherds seek to surround

as star reflects hope and the son

God enters the world among

on this our Christmas Day…
