The first of four short meditations: Blood, Water, Oil and Fire. Each poem provides a different reflection on Advent. Listen, read and reflect.


Unseen, a treasured flow;
yet when poured out, brings grief.

Fetal blood, grows the Prince of Peace;
      amidst suffering, births our king. 

‘God with us’, dawns from Mary’s womb; 
      dark kingdoms crumble - Christ’s blood flows.
