Some people enjoy a book to dip into during Advent. Haphazard by Starlight, an anthology, chosen by Janet Morley, features a poem for every day from the beginning of Advent, through Christmas, and up to the feast of Epiphany. With poets as varied as Rowan Williams, Sylvia Plath, Philip Larkin and William Blake there’s something for pretty much all tastes. (It gets a bonus point from former RRC staff member Tim for including “BC-AD” by UA Fanthorpe (https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poets/ua-fanthorpe) – the poem from which the book takes its name.) Alongside each poem is a short reflection from the author, followed by a prompt for our own reflection – a question to ponder, things to look out for during the day, and suggestions for reflective activities.
