Clear, crystalline skies

lit by the Night Beings

that lived so long ago

and still we see their light as though it were

their yesterday

 

And, now, the beginning

of a tomorrow

that begins

a new season

a new cycle

a new year

 

Newness,

like the crisp

fresh

frosty

air that startles the senses

 

Newness that is, itself,

fresh and glistening

in the darkness

of the unknown
