Various life-time scenarios …

The moment closer draws:

For enraptured child

Glittering eyes and sleepless night

Breathless expectation,

As darkness gives way

to Christmas morning

~~~~~

The moment closer draws:

For ecstatic bride,

Bidding farewell to family home.

Church bells chime

As singleness gives way

to wedded rhyme

~~~~~

The moment closer draws:

For expectant mum

Excitement mingles with apprehension.

On tenterhooks she waits

for pangs of birth to give way

to exclamations of joy

~~~~~

The moment closer draws:

For enthusiastic diner

Licking lips, salivating mouth

Juices all a-flowing

As gnawing hunger gives way

to complete satiation

~~~~~

The moment closer draws:

For enervated saint

Pain-wreaked body, tormenting soul.

But spirit in exultation

Angels sing as earth gives way

to heaven’s fuller glory
