joy for january and beyond…

…to be merry best becomes you; for out of question, you were born in a merry hour. “ – Much Ado About Nothing, Act 2, Scene 1

TO BE MERRY BEST BECOMES YOU

>click to listen to audio recording of the poem To Be Merry Best Becomes You

A laugh unexpected,
a thought unrejected –
open-hearted,
open-minded,
with the hum ~ hum ~ hum
of joy in generation.
We are generating,
regenerating
ourselves,
our cells –
space
in between,
with the double-bass double-thrum,
thrum
of thought
&
all
that thought is not.
*
Merry meditating machines
and more,
much more –
current buzzing,
glowing
electric
in the dim dawn of the year,
growing newness
from oldness,
gearing up
for boldness,
moving
and musing –
perpetual emotion amusing
as we feel
our way
forward,
face merry,
face forward,
Janus in joy
at the turn of the year.
