Ragtag Daily Prompts combined…links throughout poem.
Winter jewels strung, entwined along
Autumn’s shoulders; sparking from
Her ears, wrists; encircling fingers
Soul, be grateful for this glimpsed
Glimmer, Star in the East, Holy harbinger
Foreshadowing: in rough manger-born
Blessed baby King…anointed with wisdom
He’ll not be unaware of what’s to come
Won’t walk away from God’s chosen ones
Entrusted to His shepherding care
The Lord is with us, Immanuel
Prophets foretold, angels declare
Christ, living bridge between God, man
Destined Savior, will redeem the Fall
Restore each heart prone to falter
Shatter in crash of flesh, spirit married…
He recognizes, shows compassion to
Imperfect vessels created to carry Eternal
Ideal; His love, grace, resurrection power
Will save, heal, transform in mercy’s hour
Dust and tears of shuffling pilgrims
Sculpt each one into masterpiece which
Magnifies glory, God’s praises forever.
