Advent ABC: Shepherds

Sprawled in dreams

on distant hills,

shielding flocks

from dark dusk chill.


Star-burst sparks

sprayed them with light,

tearing rents

through bounds of night.


Wild angel praises 

burst from high.

Impassioned message

blazed the sky.


Two thousand years;

the Shepherd still

shields his flock

from dark dusk chill.
