Christmas Poem, 2009

"I tell you, if these were silent
the stones would shout out."
-- Jesus, in Luke 19:40

But they were singing
at the beginning, too,

vibrating in the silent
space between atoms,

the groans of creation joining
with one woman's voice,

a cry we may yet hear
in the moment after sound.
-- Michelle M. Hargrave, 2009
