Ring in the New Year


Janus has arrived!

This fellow was standing in a Dublin street waiting for  January first to arrive. Just below a bit I’ve a small blessing for your  New Year.

Thanks to Joanne Olivieri for publishing my poem, The Coming Time, at her ezine, http://stanzaicstylings.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-coming-time-after-swineherd-by.html

A Blessing for the New Year

Light of  Moon,
light of  sun,
light of stars,
illuminate your way.

Wisdom of ancestors be yours,
strength of heart be yours,
protection of hearth be yours,
Love weave a cloak to lay
upon your shoulders.
