Tabula Rasa

A Poem by An owl on the moon

A clean slate...

Author's Note

An owl on the moon
Tabula rasa is Latin for “blank slate.” A place to begin fresh... Wishing you all a very happy New Year... one you live out with joy and peace... one you live out with love... one you always remember.

(In Roman mythology, Janus was the god of gates, doorways, beginnings and endings. His most prominent remnant in modern culture is his namesake, the month of January, which depicts the new year.- Wikipedia)

A beautful poem on new beginnings. This was such a motivational read for me. Putting the past behind and starting with a clean slate is something I always strive to do so this was very relatable for me. It can be so uplifting when we dont allow the baggage of the past and all its misgivings to weigh us down.

Thank you for your kind words, dear Divya. May this new year bring you such wondrous new beginnings... read more
I love your poem but your typesetting is too tight & distracting & hard to read. I love that your artwork reflects your "steam-frosted mirror" idea, but dreary coloring suggests a downer, not an upcoming promise. Usually your page layout is top-notch, but this one isn't sending me. As for the words, you strike the right balance between upbeat & reality. I think people are too jaded to endure a "rah! rah!" poem -- it's wise to acknowledge how people are feeling beat up by what came before. Nicely soothing message giving a nudge toward better possibilities (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Imagine if we never had the chance of new beginnings or clean slates...
January (Janus) , continually opens new paths for us to explore , where we go and what we do is down to us .
Have we learned to keep that new slate clean and worthy of its gift ?
