By John Cannon

Often lost
in our warp-speed culture

where adults are revved
by media hype

and children are
constantly overstimulated

is the soft ambience

the deep soothing feeling

of the nativity scene

where the focus of all
is on a sleeping infant,

where shepherds, animals,
and even kings


and move very quietly,

where each living being
is drawn out of themselves

to concentrate on others,

to absorb the meaning
of a wondrous gift,

to embrace

and become embraced

by the gentlest sense



and love.
