Sunrise on a New Year

photo by Russell E. Willis - Vermont 2022

Christmas Sky

Is the Christmas sky

the brilliant night

the host of stars

illuminating paths for

curious souls

and a venue for celestial song?

Or is the Christmas Sky

the dawn that greats

a baby’s cry, a mother’s sigh

the not yet blue

no longer black

too early to tell if

cloud or refracted light

on the canopy of life

that not yet time

before the gift of a

new day is opened?
