Second Sunday of Advent
by U.A. Fanthorpe
This was the moment when Before
Turned into After, and the future's
Uninvented timekeepers presented arms.
This was the moment when nothing
Happened. Only dull peace
Sprawled boringly over the earth.
This was the moment
When a few farm workers and three
members of an obscure Persian sect
Walked haphazardly by starlight straight
into the kingdom of heaven.
