New Year's Day--
everything is in blossom!
I feel about average.
--Kobayashi Issa
In Roman mythology, Janus is the god of gates, doors, doorways, beginnings, endings and time. His most prominent remnant in modern culture is his namesake, the month of January, which begins the new year. Most often he is depicted as having two heads, facing opposite directions; one head looks back at the last year while the other looks forward to the new, simultaneously into the future and the past.
On January 21, let’s look both backward and forward. Bring your favorite poems (preferably by a writer other than yourself) which, in the spirit of Janus, explore or celebrate “beginnings, endings and time”. Cast your net wide. Think metaphorically as well as literally. Let your mind (and your senses) run free.
