Crack in The Year
Did you hear it? This morning at 3:33 a.m. the year 2009 cracked. Up until that very instant in time, the year thought it was omnipotent, infinite, rolling along without a care, thinking itself unstoppable. But then, like a branch of a pear tree, loading with ripening fruit, bending, the angle of the sun lowering, seasons queueing up; readying the earth for that darker, colder haltering, She cracked. The year can no longer deny, it is time to gather up all She has been building toward and make ready for the solstice, looming in the the early autumn sky.
