What a brilliant way to get your message heard. I really enjoyed this. Often poems can be lost on me but your message rang out loud and clear.
You have sketched the outline and coloured it in with an economy of language that shows your skill beautifully.
Marvelous! I could see a bit of a Christ figure in the old man. People waited for Christ for centuries and when He came, it was not in a manner that they expected. Yet He came for our salvation.

Perfect story for the Christmas season! For being a first attempt at poetry, I'd say you did absolutely awesome!
Congratulations for placing 8th in Masters and 12th overall.
Yahoo! It is cool to see our names side by side on the top 20 list! (Though I'm surprised you're not above me. ;) )
