Joseph's Light

a lonely figure
in silence appears
each Christmas year..
might we make his
 place more secure..?
recall his namesake
in Egypt's deep past..
Joseph the Viceroy
with many travails
observes a descent
with ascent foreseen..
let us then imagine
 this newer Joseph
in silent watch 
pondering his name.. 
with swift recognition
of the ancient Formula
which eternally repeats:
our many steps down
 are concealed within
 that One step up..
 energy so flows 
hidden messianic
