Happy New Year

Time is unreal
Although calendars appeal
To the sense of a reveal
So we want them to unveil
Each month in detail
And what the dates may entail:
Birthdays, holidays, fasts and feasts
But when we expect it the least
Pain, heartbreak and occasional disease
Reminds us that we are just drifting
Organic matter that is scripting
their names on the shifting
Sands of the universe.
