Poised for proclamation

For unto each
a child is born:
into each heart
the spark is laid,
the table set,
the manger swept,
the stars aligned,
the patient shepherds
and their sheep,
the boisterous angels
and the wise ones
with their gifts
all waiting,
poised for proclamation;
for the moment
of acknowledgement
when all earth shall cry out
in recognition
of the Divine,
which is birthed again and again
each time we open our eyes.
