2012.12.02 Advent Invitation

I’ve followed many a shiny
star
into many a stinking stable
to find it
empty
Leaving, I look back—
Wait!
A streak of light
on a strand of straw
bids me stop,
look,
listen.

Thanks! Advent has such heft for me. I am not really a poet but occasionally one bursts forth and I write it down almost whole. Such is this one.
