the new year

these first new days

we are waking up to
the coldest of mornings
and a world covered in thick fog
outside our window.

we've been unwell,
but now mending.
most part of our days are spent indoors
in the kitchen, cooking warm nourishing meals
reading, and
resting deeply to nature's lullaby.

tomorrow, its the year's first full moon
we'll rise from our languor
get our hands (+ hearts) deep in work
and begin this annual journey
into another beautiful, magical new year.


  1. Celebrating the first new moon has been a part of our fast life too.. Made sure to slowly cherish it with simple food and lemon tea.

  2. yes, we're remembering to witness
    the magic of the new crescent and the full moon every month.
    its a beautiful and soulful ritual to become part of.


let my thoughts come to you
when I am gone
like the afterglow of sunset
at the margin of starry silence
