A Christmas Wish: for Enlightenment


And so today, as, like the wise men, we find our way to hope, 
and, bearing our gifts, we set them forth before the world
to honor the birth and promise of new life,
my wish becomes that all may be enlightened;
that those who are governed by fear, greed, and distrust
may discover anew the beauty and goodness 
of all that is created, and move to honor and protect
this fragile earth, our island home:
to tend the sick and feed the hungry,
to give rest to the weary and soothe the suffering, 
to pity the afflicted and shield the joyous
and all for the sake of Love.
