Songline

by Kevin T McEneaney

There’s a compelling need for ritual

bringing us back to the center of self

where music reverberates in the soul,

creating our identity and smile.

 

This is especially true at Christmas

with myths of journey and camaraderie.

 

We assemble, affirming the story:

search for shelter, lighting candle in dark,

humble shepherds on hills, birth in a barn,

soft manna of snow, bright stars up above.

 

We are all reborn in holy aura

of joyful Christmas song with each other.
