kingdom of the invisible

I've been thinking about this story, listening
to Cynthia Ozick read it, pondering how to sink
beneath the crust of the visible, spreading out
some plans for the new year all over the floor,
preparing to assemble.

Listen to In the Reign of Harad IV
And happy new year.

white out

how the snow looks like chalk marks
against the slate night as I shovel
foolishly/joyfully into the wind

Gone but not forgotten...Coney Island's boardwalk.
Some photos from last year.
It's the holidays of course.
Food, family: good stuff.
Merry New Year, Happy Xmas!

Long Night Moon

or Moon Before Yule
or crumpled moon

(To Rebecca who comes up with much
better names for the full moon)
