Waxing crescent moon and Venus at sunset – January 2, 2014
The new year progresses
on a hang nail
of waxing crescent moon
that snagged Venus,
enticing as a diamond pendant.
I linger and wait
as the bright evening woman
lowered her skirt of flannel red
at the feet
of the brittle, cold sky
frozen to the marsh
beyond the tamaracks.

You must learn day by day, year by year to broaden your horizon. The more things you love, the more you are interested in, the more you enjoy, the more you are indignant about, the more you have left when anything happens.
