1809


two people answer
one question in their footsteps -
trek to Bethlehem

trek to Bethlehem -
angels hum and shepherds watch
hearts that beat as one

hearts that beat as one -
Mary and Joseph travel
the way to sainthood

I like this journey to Christmas its rhythm is almost like sitting aback a donkey and swaying and stepping. Excellent job.

What a lesson can be learned from the story of Mary and Joseph and that is "Doing the right thing" in our lives. We must thank them for that.
