The Star and a Heart


Epiphany2016The star was not deceived
when it called those distant ones
to walk towards the God who was near to them.

The star was not deceived
when it showed the desert path,
humbler and harder.

The star was not deceived
when it halted over the house
of humble folk:
there the great future was born.

Your heart was not deceived
when it took up the path
in search of the unkown.

Your heart was not deceived,
when it did not give in
to meaningless impatience.

Your heart was not deceived,
when it knelt
before the Boy.
