  • I unlocked a New Year this morning.
    The sun sent up a single shaft from below the horizon, like a salute.
    It is a day like any other,
    But we decide to mark it as an Alpha and Omega.

    The journey begins: Now.

    In the heart of winter mechanical birds
    Chorus at sunrise.
    In the depth of the forest we will find a glade. Enchanted.
    Here, in my mind, is a key,
    It can open imaginary doors.
    So it begins, the rough magic of our calendar world.
