Christmas, Legend, Love, satire

The First Coming

Adorning the scarlet crown of thorns

he graced the parched sands of 

ancient Bethlehem with legendary 

bounties of those infinite compassions.

A messiah took birth in the shanty

dwellings of the humblest shepherds,

A shooting star sighted somewhere,

It was the first tremors,those calm

                whispers and silent tears.

 He silently trudged on those impotent

lands leaving in every-footprint a gushing

fountain brimming with divine mercy

Brought down the mighty

Roman Empire  not with a saddle or sword 

but with a single drop of his blood

And when the lighting struck  

the barren lands, he humbly took upon

himself the sins of all those around,

resurrecting from his humanly abode 

It was the first coming, the most

anticipated one.


(Merry Christmas to all my Christian Friends, it’s my humble take on the spirit of Christmas and the legendary story Of Christ)

  1. Thank you very much, Tanya. ❤

    And a very Merry Christmas to you.

    And may I just say how beautifully and poetically you showed the significance of what Christ’s birth meant in human history – never have I seen it so beautifully and succinctly put. 😚

    1. Hey Count, Merry Christmas.

      I am so glad you found my words meaningful. The story of Christ is beyond any religion and scriptures. It’s a tale of mercy, compassion and above all humanity. Although a Hindu , I grew up listening to bibilical tales by mom, and would even keep a Christmas tree decorated with gifts for me and my brother 🙂

  2. This is so sublime and absolutely beautiful. The magical picture and your wondrous words. May the Light of the Lord shine bright in our hearts and bless our beautiful Mother Earth with peace and love all around. Thank You! Merry Christmas! 🙂
