Christmas Poem 2011

"And the Word became flesh and lived among us." John 1:14a


What word seeded the cell?

Which letter of God's alphabet

anchored the sequence of life?


Did the angel speak it or sing?

Did Mary hear the Word's whisper,

as it moved, sure-footed, into the world?


– Michelle M. Hargrave, 2011
