Poetry for New Year's Eve!

In the January 2013 Poetry magazine is this poem by Matthew Nienow.  It speaks to me of what we celebrate today.


End Grain

is an opening, is all
we can see

of the long
strands that make

the pathways for
rays, bisecting

annular rings,
the most

vulnerable door
of what makes

the holiest of
things.
