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

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. 😚
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 🙂
