New Year


New Year
The new year rolls in
like the waves––distinct
from the rest, still water

A moment of energy untamed,
dissolving again to the water before,
merging itself to the waves
that come next.

I watch the swell,
the unknown heaving itself
into a frenzy, followed by
a quiet breath.

A lull in the movement
followed by a force
so strong it could knock
me over.

All of it
is You.

All of these waves
surge one after another,
rolling together––one body
of water.

All of these years
surge one after another
rolling together––
a life.
