If we consider ourselves as so important
that we must fill
every moment of our lives with action,
when will we have the time
to make the long slow journey
across the desert as did the Magi?
Or sit and watch the stars as did the shepherds?
Or brood over the coming of the child as did Mary?
For each one of us,
there is a desert to travel.
A star to discover,
and a being within ourselves to bring to life .
