Let’s call them New Year’s Revolutions
In the coming year, I resolve to re-solve
my problems and issues every day
not just on this morning.
For every morning is the morning
of a whole new year,
a bright blank page
in which any thing
can be a new thing.
Let every moment be a moment like now,
when the newborn sun shines
over the ridge
onto the scarlet breast
of a cardinal,
and the eye
for a moment sees nothing,
nothing but sparkling red.
1. The red breast of the cardinal on the hill
2. The scent of orange and cloves
3. The sound of a woodpecker drumming high in a tree on the bluff
4. A warm house and warm clothes in bitter weather
5. All my Beloveds.
May we walk together in Beauty into a radiant new season.

Hi, Beth, I love your blog! I responded to this one by email and I’m not sure you got it. Is there another way I can get a message to you, besides here? Thanks!
Hmmm. Somehow I missed the email. Certainly, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your feedback on the blog!
