Janus Awakens

Janus opens the door after a long sleep
And looks through the gate of the past,
Now says farewell to all that’s been done
Until turning his head to the future,
And walks in one direction for all to follow.
Restart has begun and it’s now a new
Year, and Janus can once again sleep.

    Wow. Best poem I've read all week, easily. I appreciate your characterization of the new year. It's great imagery you have here; and, I think, great allusions.
