it is silent night
 a holy one, 
the Christmas eve
 where few stars
 sparkle  from afar
 cloudless remains 
the sky dark as ever 
in December.

A  soft cry from afar
 piercing  through the quietude 
dispels the heavy silence, as
 the world wakes up
readying itself to welcome 
the babe. A  ray of light 
shines for a second
creating an illumination.

A powerful array 
enough to awaken
 the  inner self and 
 brighten the external
marks the phenomenon
 the birth of the saviour,
chorusing  hallelujah,
Jesus is here.
