New Year’s Day 2013

Old moon fades
behind tree’s arms
& the sky streaks gold

New Year’s Dawn.

This year I’ll
button up my petticoats
paint my eyes green

hide my heart.

This year I’ll
invite you in
to survey the décor.

Yes, this year I’ll
be more of me
than I’ve ever been

cast off the fetters
of memory, promise
to set myself free.
