Sounds of the Heavens

I wrote this some time ago without Christmas in mind, 
but believe it is appropriate for the season.




Sounds of the heavens

Wave across eternity

And emptiness of space –

Vibrations of steady beat

Pulsating in time,

Light slowed in pace

To hum from spheres

Across years.


Now a baby’s cries

Move through walls and hearts to sing,

Vibrations set up

From light to light

Where once no sound was.


Welcome, child.  Do you know

Your voice is a small refection

Of the sound of the eternal cosmos?


Do you know you are in the Image,

Sound and all, of the Living Word?

Cry out, oh child, and join

The Music of the spheres,

Life to everlasting Life.
