On New Years Day Unicorns Fly

Unicorn Horn in Night Sky by Nina Serrano

Unicorn Horn in Night Sky by Nina Serrano

The year ends in pajamas
and nibbles of holiday leftovers
and tying up loose ends
tossing out clutter that gets in the way
of winged unicorns preparing for flight
and the soaring journey of the herd
Lured by the glittering cosmos above
they take a galloping start
leaving footprints in the dust of dawn
and marks in time.
