New Year’s Day, 2022: The Promise of Light
If I could, I’d share the river dawn,
a gift, not of quiet, but peace
to listen to the moon’s farewell song
and the echo of stars in gull laughter,
the dream dance of joy
across the universe.
Then tell it, you word-woman,
the Oracle says,
trust this time,
this time, see how time
is a thousand universes,
and believe you belong always
a part, a voice within her heart-voice–
remember the ever-language blue-shifting
in nightglow, in sun-smile,
in stellar rhapsody
the promise of light.
On this dark, foggy New Year’s Day morning, I decided to ask the Oracle for a New Year’s message, and she’s reminded me that the universe goes on no matter what and that there’s light behind the clouds. She also pretty much ordered me to write (see below), so I’m hoping this is a sign that I will have a good year of writing. I’m thankful for all of you who read my work. This has been a very long year. Stay healthy! Happy New Year!
Sharing this with dVerse Open Link Night because on this solemn day we need the hope of some light.
