My Journey to God

“Wisdom” and “Flight”


Magi meeting Herod
Sensing aura of evil
On to meet real power
With special gifts
Ignoring worldly power,
Finding their way home.


To Egypt, evil escalating
No camels, one mule
Clearing cliffs, desert, water
Returning when evil lessened
Not to Bethlehem
To the quietude
Of Nazareth.
