A Poem for the New Year: More to Be

January 5, 2019 Leave a comment

This can be a tough time of year for many; sickness, hospitalization, even death. The holidays mark passages; we celebrate hard and then the let-down sinks in. And, now, today we move through a new moon/solar eclipse in Capricorn – at 8:28 PM Eastern.

So, be careful with yourself, watch your energy level, stay atuned to your inner needs, and be!

More to Be

The list is long,
The new year moves
Ahead, more’s afoot,
Low sun shadows head north.

Days remain short,
Long dark cools the soul.
Energy wanes in the aftermath
And always more to do.

Chill winds blow,
A chance of snow,
Time to hunker
Shrugging in the lee.

Moon hunkers in sun’s lee
Tonight. Long lists wait,
The breath abates,
And always more to be.
