In the darkness of Advent,
I find myself

(Disconcerted, disoriented)

I’d like to dismiss these feelings
of disorientation, yes even

Dis (an odd word)
is negative.

And yet,
in the chaos of Christmas
the expectations, the longings
the desires to create and experience
this picture card moment

I find myself
Holding grief and pain
as well as moments of joy and gladness

To embrace it all
To live fully.

I am not alone.

I know this man of sorrows.
who weeps
who loves
who reminds me

We are not alone.

Blue Christmas
