Advent Calendar

Black and white Advent calendar
I will make you red and green
Haven't you heard the red oleander
Dropping its last leaf for December sheen

Growing up with bullets in the Taliban
Blood spills into the streets of Kashmir
Still the Calendar craves and calls for
Gold, Frankincense and balmy myrrh

Whenever the birds are all gone
Open the crimson card door
See, when the star will return
As the Bethlehem angels soar

In the centre of the white frost
In every cube of icy story
Look at the  pink loving bouquet
Smiling  to greet the glory

I do remember the pine tree
I had planted on such a day
So that he can keep green
Whether December or May

He will come he will come
Chocolate of assurance in every window
Tender palms and the face handsome
Soft yellow with sunrise glow

Advent box of twenty-fourth December
Leads me to the Angel moonlight
Echoes of the Migdal Eder
Shining star in the ebony night

What is in the last box
Christmas tree or red cherry? 
I kept waiting with wonder
Like the child like strawberry

A photo came out depicting Jesus
Almost as a man like we are
With personality as the Mount Everest 
And a heart with cucumber care

We  will light the waiting candles
Deck up  spirited Christmas trees
Lay our ears to the vibrant voice
I come back with the Christmas breeze

The voice rises from the seas and rivers
Also from the stars above
In spite of  bullets and pistols
What prevails are his wounds of love
