seeing and hearing

And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them. (Luke 2:20)


the shepherds
saw and heard

is that because
they were not
so preoccupied
with their own
plans and agendas
but were
open and receptive
to whatever
or whoever
may come along

what if the angels
had come
to the bankers
or the lawyers
or the doctors
or the businessmen
or even the ministers
would they even
have noticed

apparently not
or the angels
would've come to them
on that first christmas day
as the world
was too busy spinning
in their own lives and worlds
to pay attention

not much has changed
in two thousand years
