New dawn, new year

Only in reflection
can we come to see
that while what lies before us
still looks dark,
the sun is stealing up behind us,
bringing light, illumination;
the tiny sparks to which we cling
so desperately in darkness
will soon be overpowered
by the sunbeams that they echo,
and all the shadows
that loomed so large
will be thrown into relief,
becoming insubstantial
in the brightness of new dawn.

Lovely reflection for the first day of this new year.

Like the new look here, too.
