The much awaited Christmas

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,

Laughing uproriously

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.
