Christ our Advent hope

winter-trees-dec-08

Christ our Advent hope,

bare brown trees,

etched dark across a winter sky,

leaves fallen, rustling.

ground hard and cold, remind us to prepare for your coming;

remind us to prepare for the time

when the soles of your feet will touch the ground,

when you will become one of us

to be at one with us.
