Hello, January

Hello, January Yea, the Roman God Janus The ruler of new beginnings, The first hour of the day The first day of the month The first month of the year. You are blessed with two heads One head to look forward And the other for retrospective view I take inspirations from your two heads For new objectives and new commitments And to renew the old commitments. To cast the old and welcome the new. The shortest day has passed The days are getting longer Soon I can stay out in a twilight. Though January named after you, Two seasonal diversions are around To ease the bites of winter. Though there’s quietness all around But secret activities are in full swing The soil absorbs the pure rains And micro organisms converting Fodder into usable nutrients For the next crop of plants. The hungry earthworms force a way Impregnating the soil to welcome The seeds and bare roots to come.
