New Year

2014-06-02 20.24.04

As the year turns over,
I find myself acutely aware
of life and death,
of despair and hope,
of joy and sorrow,
of pain and promise,
of what has been
and what is to come


“I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: “Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”
And he replied:
“Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”
So I went forth, and finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night. And He led me towards the hills and the breaking of day in the lone East.”
