“They offered him gifts, gold, frankincense and myrrh. And being warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they departed to their own country by another way.” (Matthew 2:12)
If you have looked for the Light and then you think you see it,
and then you pack everything you have and travel for a very long time,
then finally, finally, finally, you find that light
for which you have been longing. . .
If you stumble into that Light’s round, warm beams, you may not be sure,
but what you do know is that your knees weaken
and you stagger and fall and kneel
and then a peace you have never known
floods your soul with light and warmth.
Of course you go home by another way.
The old way will never do now, will it?
