A New Year

Rolling the window down
I begin to breath again

Driving away 
looking ahead
at the veil of clouds
knowing there are stars beyond them

The world outside 
flies, fades, goes

Here is the new year
clear direction
guiding within

Fulfilling one 
just one
only one

Grace given & received

Where did the moon go?
Here is the sun
the glory of the eastern rising sun
I am almost home
