December 27: The Second Day of Christmas

          --Luke the Researcher/Writer Weighs In

In Philippi
The demon-possessed slave girl prattled good news,
Ceaselessly, unknowingly.
Vacated, she had nothing to say.

Paul, hit by divinely-touched sparks,
blesses us with sermons for the ages.

The mother of our Lord ponders.
Not for her the quick, glib turn of phrase,
But she meditates deeply.

I knew I needed her words
to tell the carefully researched story
of the Lord.
Even after all these years,
she haltingly recounts the events.

          She is a necessary witness.
