Nativity

Clad in an ashen veil
Towards her destiny she drifted slowly;
She trod the path
The winds had laid before her.
To lighten the responsibility
She had borne in her womb;


The fallen, barren cradle
Awaited her arrival.
With its gaze towards the blue,
Pouting the uneven cracks;
Its parched lips, longed,
For the reign of her offspring.


A virgin once, in pristine white.
Now jaded and faded
With a mission at hand.
The Mother of a Deliverer
Wept in joy. The pregnant cloud
Gave earth its Saviour.
