Diaspora Blessing for Multiple New Years

half moon titled in blue purple sky

Blessed are you for bending time,
future-traveler, moving within
your neighbor’s last year
while in your new year.
Blessed is your shapeshifting
of your moon-cycled body
into more rigid months,
and your balancing of spells,
calling both by their names.
Blessed is your witness
to the lunar seasons’
continuous dancing
in the background of calendars. Blessed
are you, shadow traveler, blessing candles
to honor your day while inside their nights,
beginning your day before
the world you move within is ready.
Blessed are you, disassimilationist, who lives
among another’s time and retains your own
entirely. Blessed also are you,
brave traveler, who moves
between worlds.
