New Year

Ha-yom harat olam Today is the birthday of the world. Jewish New Year begins tomorrow at sundown.

What if
The new year began
Every morning
We began
By speaking
Into it
With fresh words
Saw it
With fresh eyes?
The crotchety old lady
Who lives
Next door
Got a new beginning
Even if she doesn't
As new
But merely
An extension
The same old
Same old
Same old
What if we planted
A sunflower
Just one
Facing her house?
