Man’s breath was still, so was his mind,
One becomes what one thinks—–
This is the one secret, says the Upanishads.
Wisdom had been thoroughly learned
After all the kicks in each lesson
And together man conspired
For a better world.
The slumbering powers of man
Had awakened and man no longer
Worried too much, ate too much or slept too much.
He forgot what was left behind
And what was in front of him.
With right application of thoughts,
He stayed focused in the present.
All the doppelgangers and the twins were there,
Along with kin and kith,
While children played and spoke gently
In a vibrant and engaging voice.
The champagne flutes glistened
And the stars in heaven glittered.
The beautiful sound of the trumpet was heard.
It announced the coming of Christ.
Man had prepared grounds for this landing,
The angels knew it and the saints felt it.
All the cacophony vanished
And symphony was replenished.
Men and women were all united
To kiss Christ and move with him
Into a better world where peace and justice
And liberty would prevail with all their might.
No child would go hungry,
No traveler would go thirsty
And all the disasters and the diseases
Would disappear with the speed of lightning.
The much awaited Christmas had come.
Christ had come, Krishna had come,
So had Gods of all faiths.
The world sang the Christmas carol
In a grace and beauty unparalleled,
Unheard since the days of creation.
