365 Poems in 365 Days: Go!

Considering my history of New Year and Other Time Resolutions, this will fall apart in about three weeks. But until then, it's write 365 poems in 365 days. This one is called:

New Year

One year ends as another one starts
No time passes between one and the next
A moment to mark in winter's dark heart
Midnight; the moment; everyone expects

No time passes between one and the next
Duration suspended, watching the clock
Midnight the moment everyone expects
Two Thousand and Thirteen waits for the knock

Duration suspended watching the clock
The hand creeps to twelve, waiting forever
Two Thousand and Thirteen waits for the knock
Somehow it's stuck between now and never

The hand creeps to twelve - waiting forever
A moment to mark in winter's dark heart
Somehow stuck between now and never
One year ends as another one starts
