January 2021

stars appear
reflected, freshly
into place
like the Fool’s card—zero played
openly, surprised

The Fool is ever walking beside us, but we are free to choose its wonder and possibility rather than its ignorance and recklessness.

Happy New Year!

  1. ‘The fool is ever walking beside us’ – so true, there were plenty of them huddling up without masks today because of course the virus respects public holidays! Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year Kerfe 😊

  2. I love the idea of choosing the fool’s sense of wonder and possibility…….awesome! I think it is out of that source that our poems are born.

  3. Stunning artwork to accompany your stellar words, Kerfe. I love image of freshly pressed stars ‘falling into place like the Fool’s card’. I agree with Brendan about the magic and danger of the Fool.
