Ritual for Turning the Calendar

Poem © 2013 by Joyce Mason

We turn the page
on Time:

sometimes because the month
has ended
sometimes to look ahead.

These are sacred moments
to stop, reflect:
are we on the same page
with the flow of life?
Are we in The Now
The Past
or looking too far
into The Future?

Grant me the wisdom
to plan as best I can for tomorrow
while living squarely in the moment.

Bless those squares
on the calendar,
there to remind us.
