+ 1ST POEMS: At The Month Of January

I once disliked the month of January:

and this I blame on my stupidity---

which I, complaisant, had allowed to mar

so many blessings that were given me.

In that month comes our Lord's Epiphany

(let doubters silence their shrill perfidy):

the miracle of Jesus' Incarnation,

announced to certain seekers by His Star;

and makes this month wholly extraordinary.

On its ninth day, Christ drew me to Salvation.

Now, decades since, this holy inspiration

must---even moreso---bring my poetry

a deeper sense of prayerful celebration

until I am launched to eternity.

Looking forward to your unveilings of truth and devotion until, as you strikingly scribed, you are "launched to eternity." A triumphant announcement.
