Haul Shipwrecked Sailors into Advent ark

Decorations dangle on trees,

chosen presents hope to please,

foreclosed families will surely freeze.

 

Nativity stories re-told in bathrobes,

guardian angels pace and probe,

stars compete with service strobes.

 

In city streets raucous choirs sing,

candled dreams, church bells ring

– will hard hearts crack to let Him in?

 

Will there be hope beyond kindly glow?

Will there be slow-mo cinematic snow?

Will any sweet chariot swing down low?

 

Deeply loved: divine-lit our dark,

scorch our lives with sacred mark:

haul shipwrecked sailors into advent ark.
