unfinished nativity

it seems NiteKirk is a place I meet the muse - another poem emerged at the January NiteKirk on Friday. As I sat reflecting on this unfinished engraving of the visit of the Magi, it seemed that Christmas was not done with me just yet. 



unfinished nativity
after ‘The Adoration of the Magi’, Hendrick Goltzius

into the void I pour
empty
despairing
adrift

onto the woman I throw
alone
content
lonely

from the brothers I want
joyful
together
loved

in the light I see
remembered
courageous

hopeful
