Night Light

I wonder if Jesus
at age six
had night terrors
in the form
of visions
that foretold
his crucifixion
and just what
Mary (his mother)
did to calm him
back to sleep
if there was
anything
she could do
since he was
destined
to experience
humanity
to bridge life
and God’s faith.

I believe she lit
a candle
to illuminate
his dark room
in spite of
Joseph’s ire
at such
extravagance.
