the first light of advent
is the light of stones
stones that live in seashells
and crystals and in bones

the second light of advent
is the light of plants
plants that grow up to the sun
and in the breezes dance

the third light of advent
is the light of beasts
beasts that walk upon the earth
the greatest and the least

we have out advent candles out and have been placing appropriate things around it. things we have found on our nature walks, like rocks, crystals, even a crab shell we found on the beach in the summer. the wreath is the plant, representing the second week, and for the third week, we usually place wooden animals around the wreath. i would post a picture, but someone dropped the camera the the lens shattered! oh dear. maybe Santa will notice.
