New Year

New Year

As the waxing of the moon

the New Year was once

a time to leave the past behind

and move forward, yet to what?

It did not matter for life

lay ahead in that great unknown

of youth’s sea of possibilities.

But now I have reached an age

where it is a mark of waning

and of the entropy that precedes

the end of all one’s earthly years.
