Resonant Birth

by Patricia McClelland

A crisp slice of moon rises

the chosen star ignites

Balthazar binds gold to his saddle

Melchior gathers the myrrh

Gaspar measures frankincense

desert night wind swirls

sand about the stable

it rustles beneath ragged rasps

of beasts settling into sleep

and the harsh rhythmic pants

of a woman delivering

the promised messiah

her labor made painless by faith

He will turn things around
