January Waning

January, fickle month, dangling enticing offers of indelible change.

Two faced God, turning pious wants, guilt laden passions to life of dearth.

I am being, eclipsed by futile doing.

I cling to your promise, curse your passing, evidence of my failure.

When surrendered to February love, indulgence excused in romantic promise.

Healing love lit days lengthen, spring tantalizes, summer beckons.

I repent sweet January, patient teacher, loving friend of present being.

Tis not your dark cold I fear, but my unrealized whorl.

This is known as the Hidden Galaxy, isn't it beautiful.
