A Vision Of A Child

Under the Christmas tree sits a nativity scene in the old town square. I sit on a rustic wood bench and reminisce on the stories I’ve been told about Jesus being born on Christmas Day. When all of a sudden, I hear movement in the bushes; I turn my head and look over my shoulder. With a sudden fright, a tall pure white stallion with feathered wings, steps forward and says, “My name is Peg, climb on my back and I’ll take you to where it all began.” I arose to my feet and got on Peg’s back, held on tightly to his mane. He galloped off at full speed facing into the wind and took off soaring into the night full of stars, being guided by a large, bright, glowing star. Peg turned his head and said, “That is the Christmas Star ahead.” As I looked down below, I saw coming from the east, three men. Could they be the three Wise Men? As we reach the star we slow down to a town. Peg said, “This is Bethlehem down below.” Peg starts descending close to a stable and lands. I anxiously dismount and we both walk towards the stable. My spirit was overpowered with awe, there in the small dim lite stable, we found a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger, with his mother Mary kneeling beside Him. The shepherds that were watching their flocks near the stable also came all elated, one of them said, “An angel appeared and told us a Savior, the Messiah, had been born and that we would find Jesus laying in a manger. So, we immediately came to see if truly Jesus our Savior was born.” The three Wise Men arrived and said, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.” They gazed at the young Child and immediately fell down and worshiped Him, they presented their gifts to him of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. We stayed for a while in admiration of our Lord Jesus. After a time, Peg said, “I need to get you back before you are missed.” Together we flew into the endless night back home to the Christmas tree where I had been before. 11/18/2014 © 2014 Poetry Contest: Writing Challenge - December, 2019- I Want Christmas Poems -' Dear Heart - Wiishkobi Ode

Thank you, Arthur; for, lifting my spirits, I might place more with poems relating to the paintings if I am able. I just started painting again after 9 years. I had to stop painting in 2002, I was 55, and I couldn't focus resulting in a tumor removal in 2005 on the left side of my brain. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
