2015 – the end

or; a new beginning


Excerpt from

The Sun

by Mary Oliver

Have you ever seen
in your life
more wonderful

than the way the sun,
every evening,
relaxed and easy,
floats toward the horizon

and into the clouds or the hills,
or the rumpled sea,
and is gone–
and how it slides again

out of the blackness,
every morning,
on the other side of the world,
like a red flower


or have you too
gone crazy
for power,
for things?

Happy New Year!
