2017 we’re standing in it! My new year’s eve was spent quietly with dear friends playing cards. What about yours? A post from another friend inspired me to write a poem. I do love to write rhyme, but this one one came out as free verse. A little something to bring in the year.
New Year’s Eve
bearing whole weight of being,
Champagne breath. A luminous breeze.
Or wistful silence , mute fanfare, quiet contemplation.
Across the 12th divide
Second to second. Tireless momentum. Unfaltering pace.
Carries all. Paths enigmatic.
Ripe fruit for harvest, promises whispered, delights untasted,
Marching, relentlessly forward,
into a shimmering haze of hope
and a brand new year.
