TABULA RASA

TABULA RASA

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

Doth Janus weep to stare over Wonderland’s skies?

"




















Doth Janus weep to stare over Wonderland skies
As the first sun of the first day burns his eyes?
What waits ahead in tomorrow’s glass disguise
What composition will find its sensual reprise?

The day, the week, the month, the new year
The slate is blank like a steam-frosted mirror
Awaiting thy finger’s touch to draw it near
To release the weight of last year’s atmosphere.

Turn back only to see the dragons you fought
Then look to the path that all time hath brought
Let howl the winds and storms in fierce’d thought
Tabula rasa will at end reveal only what’s sought.

Author's Note

An owl on the moon
As Janus was the god of doorways… beginnings... endings… January welcomes us to transition to new lives… Tabula rasa is Latin for a “blank slate." May your New Year truly give you a fresh start…

“A soul that is close to despair doesn’t know that it’s already standing on the brink, beyond which there lies a new path.” ~ Elder Barsanuphius of Optina
