Reverb10 – December 20 – Beyond Avoidance

Prompt: Beyond avoidance. What should you have done this year but didn’t because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing? (Bonus: Will you do it?)
I’m pooped out from picking problems out of the puddle of this past year’s pests, plagues and predicaments. 
Tonight is a lunar eclipse ringing in the Winter Solstice – something that hasn’t happened, or probably will not happen again, for three hundred years.  
It’s a few days before Christmas and I want to revel in the happiness and anticipation of the day.  It’s a time of awe-inspiring events.  
Sorry, Reverb10, I’m a bit of a rebel so I’m avoiding YOU today.
Bella Luna
I am waiting for the moon.
Clouds spread across my palette
coating its clarity with a milky veil.
But that countenance smiling from above
will not be disheartened.
I am waiting for the promised ocherous globe.
Bella Luna metamorphosing into
a fiery midnight sun,
flaunting a new disposition,
if only for a fleeting spell.
I am waiting for the tenebrous days,
the longest one next to come,
to shorten a gloomy grasp,
rendering radiance to a dusky decline
before slumbering.
I am waiting for burning providence, the Birth.
Rescue from the depths of darkness
by a sweet visage
reminding us of our humanity,
delivering brilliant
new days of hope, again.
