This Day

Once again the day has arrived

in the midst of the busyness

with all the bright lights

and the mind numbing mall music

this day arrives in the quiet

no fanfare, no great speeches

even the most boisterous are quieted

their voices muted, silenced

after all these years

I’m still awed by this day

the old stories heard

the singing of ancient carols

how in spite of all we do

that this day happens

and if we are silent

even for the briefest moment

we might hear that voice

that calls us each by name

as the veil is lifted 

and the Divine is revealed.
