Epiphany – Only a Star


Today is the Twelfth Day of Christmas and this is my Epiphany. A poem for my friends……

 It

 Was

Only a

 Star, a tiny diamond

Twinkling, just twinkling, but a beacon in the deep sapphire sky.

Fearless, it illuminated the stable, pointing the path

 for Wise Men and guiding angels.

Only a star braving the night to light the way.

But where is it now when all is so dark? If we really looked

Could we find it shining still,                its light full of hope? Afterall

it was only a star,                                                                           just an epiphany.

    Only light,                                                                                                                   His light,

His                                                                                                                                                 Star.

Farewell Christmas.  Welcome Wise Men. We need you.
