About In January
When viewing the "The Peaceful Nativity", I
thought of The New year in a spiritual way. This
transition from the old year to another one
filled with hope and personal growth, induced me to
think of a beautiful messenger, an angel who brings
this promise forth. Her presence is draped in a shawl
that is representative of a fertile and organic earth.
Her hair is bound with the sweetness of fruit
and in her arms, she carries the precious source of
new life, an infant who symbolizes the forth coming
year and the return of Spring. Though seen as a figure
in a dream, her influence transcends sleep
and allows the world and the speaker ,in this poem, to
awaken with the blessing of divine radiance and
