Christmas Blessing

Night parts her cloak 
And out of darkness
He is reborn,

A divine breath
And Earth reaches up
To feel His presence.

Circle of Light,
The new Son is risen
And soon all is Light.

Dressed in crimson,
May encircling angels dance
Always by your side

As you merge with Him
Within the flowing fountain
Of eternity.

Take this sapphire bowl.
In its waters you hold the sky
And your reflection.

Lips upon its rim,
You are now and ever new again.
Drink deep and be blessed!

Christmas No. 1 (Rage against the Machine)

A song against authority, against brutality, and against the banality that corporations feed the public with... has beaten off the drivel from X factor and made it to number one on the Christmas charts in the UK! I think that's encouraging. :^) To be honest, it's not the kind of song I would put on my CD player, but it's the statement that matters.

They use force to make you do what the deciders have decided you must do.
Killing in the name of!
Some of those that were forces are the same that burn crosses.
And now you do what they told ya.
Those who died are justified, for wearing the badge, they're the chosen whites.
And now you do what they told ya, now you're under control.
F*** you, I won't do what you tell me.
