Ponder his nativity

Ponder 
His nativity;

His mother’s
Strange virginity. 

Consider 
His humanity

Alongside 
His divinity

And oneness        
With the Trinity.

His message –  
God’s infinity.

Becoming aware
Of our oneness
In deep silence.

My self,
Remaining aware
Of our oneness
Day and night.

May I slowly surrender
My self,
Fully aware
Of our oneness
In life, and in death.
