It Would Seem It's All Because...

it would seem
to write
to postulate
to expound
...all is lost
lost to the hammers
lost to the paint, the steamer, the dog, the child, the...

it would seem
the music
the dream
the desire
gently lies beneath the surface
...out of reach
away from touch
away from reality, away...
out of reach.

it would seem
the love
the man
the god
still pursues relentlessly...

it would seem
the words, they came
the hope, still pulses
the hesed, works regardless
all because...

This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,because he will save his people from their sins."
All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel"—which means, "God with us."
When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

They Did Not Realize

Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. ~John 21:4
