in the stable
the donkey brays
at knowing magi

a magus’ myrrh
its almost fragrance
only for the babe

conversations–
the magi, the Star
a sleeping babe

the magi
scattered on sand–
mere shadows

among sand dunes
the magi
still counting stars

    • Thank you! I agree with you about the countless great poetry around the birth of Jesus. And yet, more still come out. I suppose even more will as He who came as promised to be with us (And He will be named, Emmanuel) will remain with us until the ends of the earth. Thanks again.
