in the ninth month – v2

Mary of Nazareth and
Joseph journeying
returning to Bethlehem
in the ninth month
before the birth of Jesus
traveling with them
on their fateful journey

Walking with them
feeling the crunch of the dust
the excursion of climbing each hill
wondering where they would stay
no plan, just a journey
knowing she was carrying the king
the long foretold Messiah
