lingering moments

as snow falls
during this deepening of winter
I yet linger
near a manger

with the simple heart of a child
and aging bent knees of surrender
in adoring awe
to gaze upon the face
of God

I wonder at this God
who would so risk
entrusting himself
to the care of man

wanting to go and tell
yet unable to move
I am captivated by this heart
beating in a tiny naked chest
and can only burrow deeper
and deeper
into these silent moments
between mystery
and revelation
