Cusp





A New Year’s Eve Poem


© 2014 by Joyce Mason


 Winding down:
quiet as snow falling
Calendar switching
hushed as a church
before midnight
Darkness
awaits
dawn
A patient lover
at the train station 
of tomorrow.

New Year’s cusp:
no party
champagne
streamers
confetti
Kissing only Change
at midnight
Tenderness
relishing the pure
white landscape
of infinite possibility.
