The bleak midwinter settles
in layers of flurries without and within
Crackling fire and a boy hold
a protected book in a one room cabin
Creaking floors and hinges, rattle open
Footsteps in the snow lead
lanterns to a stage floor
where percussion explodes…
Lift up your head! See
the percussion army dance, swing
wide from the shores of burning ships, sink
deep to the lost and hopeless, feel
the heart beats of hope again, watch
footsteps cross continents to bow
on National Mall in Washington DC, dare
to imagine a world where history
celebrates The Word of light, the babe
born king, unpretentious, sets
the world ablaze with purpose.
No pit of darkness stands,
when Jesus Christ is in command.
Your army of artists surrender
Pens–Voices–Sticks–Vessels to Your hand.
