and no one would understand
try as she may to explain
that beneath a star bright shining against an inky sky
amid the busyness of crowds moving through the streets
surrounded by bundles of hay
shine brighter than any star in little eyes staring widely back into her own.
as the world rushes by
how the moment she held him in her arms
fresh from her womb
fresh from heaven
it all seemingly stopped spinning.
Breathing in His scent
in the midst of the chaos
in the craze in the dizziness of life
how all is calm in the moments
she spends meeting His gaze with her own
holding open her palms to be filled with Life.
