New Year's Day

long walk
twelve stations
each a jewel
in the crown of the year

finding midwinter sun
in rain and blow
droplet and crow
I can almost see it

perhaps a test
maybe omens

reminders of the future
elements of squandered time
amid the celebrations
of chalky down

seeing clearly
wound healing
discipline and application
make a difference

peace taps gently
as the blind man's stick
leading us on
into the fragile darkness
