Field of Time

The First Month
Holiday cheer
Starts to disappear
Gifts have been put away
Routines have resumed their place
Schedules have a more steady pace
The children have returned to their schools
With brand new clothes so that they can feel cool
Slowly Neptune traverses ecliptic space
A desert rabbit gazes fondly at the moon
A widow in a church senses the presence of grace

This Etheree moves me with its imagery. It conveys something elusive about this time of year when routine returns touched by winter clarity.

Thanks for your kind comments. I have really taken to the Etheree. I'm having a great time with it.
