Poem: When It Is Time

When it is time

Outside, it is suddenly warm
and the three feet of snow has melted in the night,
just in time for Christmas.

You reflect on shepherds in fields.
Angels on high.
and God’s reset of an entire world,

in this most peculiar place,
in a most unexpected time, with no real reason
other than…. it was time.

A lesson to us all. Anything can be begun again.
Peace. Life anew. The promise not yet reached.
No matter the time or place or circumstances,

when it is time,
it is possible.

About this poem

Just one of the many lessons of Christmas. To my Christian friends, a blessed Christmas. To my friends who follow other paths, a blessed season.
