Day 1 Dancing

Another year, another Moblog Advent Calendar. I heard the Godfrey Rush poem *Come, Immanuel* last Christmas and I liked the gritty contemporary style of it. So I googled him and found this. And the photo; I liked the idea of an undressed fir tree... Dear Mobloggers enjoy the run up to Christmas x

The universe from which Love sprang
started with a Tiny Bang
when Love, to everyone's surprise,
came dancing out of paradise,
dancing into night and day,
dancing into DNA,
dancing past security,
dancing where no-one can see,
dancing to a different drum,
dancing into kingdom come,
dancing with a virgin stranger,
dancing in the dirty manger,
dancing ever undefiled,
dancing as a little child.

Thank you dear ladies! I put it up on FB for an opinion and was told it's not very Christmassy to which I answered it doesn't have to be it will only be 1st December. That's the reason I've chosen day 1 for the last few years, I like Christmas well enough but I'm not gaga about it and prefer an image from the natural world. :)

Love the line "Dancing into DNA", maybe I should look into some Godfrey Rush :) Is the "Undressed fir" a line from a poem too? It sounds like a should be

That deep, warm green colour is very Christmassy. Lovely.

Dania says:

I agree with taniwha, that green is certainly Christmassy. And I'm right there with you in preferring images from the natural world.

Happy Christmas, Twiglet!
