Last new moon of this year
blackens
the sun’s
flaring
glow
in a cosmic
instant
freezes
fire
a vast
chronic
darkness
we have
lumbered
under:
chaotic
heartless
drudge
of a life
out of orbit
falling
into
a tedious
meaningless
void:
days marching
in place
one phantom
24 long hours
into another.

This morning
somewhere
in Chile
a child
wore
a homespun mask
turned
his eyes
to the sky
for a mere second
before
his mother
gently
lured him away
into safety:
in her embrace
he felt
the sun’s warmth
and when
she sang
him a lullaby
the words
wove
a golden
ring of hope
around
his tussled hair.

Darkness
now:
in winter solstice
we will
sleep
our deepest
sleep
only to awaken
to birthing
spring
when
anything is possible,
and in a flash
2020
will seem
like a long
frightful dream.

* Sanskrit – meaning “lead us from darkness into the light”
