Thank you all for your comments and votes on the Robin, the upload today is what Christmas is to our family! The following poem I think is just the thing for people to read at this time of year for peace and good will.

In my daydreams I've gone
to temple, church, and shrine.
I've asked rabbi, pastor, master -
Why is yours the only Divine?

Gone to mosques and to cathedrals
asked the imams and the priests -
Why do they hold others' beliefs
with such disdain, as if a Beast's?

Took a sit in circled stones and
asked the long gone mystic man,
"Why does your Divine exist only
in image only of a woman or a man?"

In this so vast Universe
millions days and nights,
why does the human think only
his or her is Divine right?

I've asked them all,
men and women so wise.
Why don't they hear
how their own God cries?

Much we humans done so past
in name of our Divine light.
Just spill blood red and brotherly
and not see our similar and right.

One wise man and a fool -
Two Kings once did dream and say,
We can get along all everyone,
please tomorrow and today.

Be back to see you all on 27th in the mean time may your god bless you and keep you safe.

THanks Trev, in all our hustle and bustle of life, how lovely to sit
back and read these words. The devine light and the right be it blessed
or not. There is no getting away from the fact that he was born and brings
us this joy yearly at this time. A Happy and Holy Christmas to you and your
family……..
