Epiphany

the journey

A hard coming they had of it

just the worst time of the year

the poet said

which is why they made it.

 

They could not have known that,

they knew only the star

and had faith it meant something

and so it is with us.

 

We have faith that the journey

is worth making

we see the star

and a hard time we had of it.

 

Just the worst times of all,

so many perils and landslides

and so easy to fail

and to lose hope.

 

Yet, like the Magi of old

we kept the faith

in our love

in us.

 

And so we, too, 

at this year's end,

descend into a better space

where the oases are.
