Advent 2014 - Advent Poem Iva Beranek


time is drawing near
when darkness shall be pierced by a new dawn
so there will be stars all over the sky
even in the darkest nights
 
Then, when heaven will meet the earth
time will go in reverse
not to back or forth
but within,
and eternity will be soaked into the
pores of the earth’s skin.

It will shine from the centre of the globe for
God will be born
in the cradle of frailty and love
 
Yes, this humble epiphany
happened in Palestine two thousand years ago,
but now, the eternity is knocking again
from within your heart
wanting to be born like a flower
out of the depths of
your darkest nights
 
time is drawing near,
in fact it is almost here
when light of the dawn will crown each day
and heaven will sing us a love-song
as sun colours the sky every morning,
every night
 
Then, in the chambers of our heart
we will find a diamond
long forgotten and lost
not a diamond from the ring,
but the one that holds the essence
of who we are.
