Holy Name

Kellaura Johnson is a senior in the M.Div. program.   Kellaura and her husband come to Seminary of the Southwest from the Diocese of Texas.

After the angels left

The shepherds went down to Bethlehem.

After the presents were ripped open

I went for a walk.

After the dazzle of morning sun on fresh snow

The afternoon sun lingered behind the clouds.

After eight days

They took him to be circumcised.

After the first day of Christmas blasts through

The next eleven drop past me, like pine needles to the floor.

After the dazzle

Life begins anew.
