5776 or What is a New Year

Now Tuesday
second day
when we consider
when we try
to understand
as though we can
what a year
means five thousand
seven hundred seventy six
years so many days
how hard
to be particular universal
all at once
when we decide
what it is we actually believe
did wrong
want to rectify at least
apologize
when we consider how awe
because we are now
in the Days of Awe
when we consider how awe
is what life is
what life can be

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
