Happy New Year!
The New Year strikes true to form
And what are you anticipating?
Joy, Fear, Excitement, Trepidation
Feeling curious about the unknown-
What hand will you play and when?
Will this year be similar to last?
Or is your world about to rock in unimaginable ways?
Might it flip for the better or worse?
Do not fear for worse is a hiatus
Making way for the New.
For better bolder changes and challenges
A chance to play phoenix
Rising from the ashes
of the bowels of life-
Or with less drama taking the oars
To steer a gentle course
Towards your dreams.
Another New Year
Time turning, a gift.
What more can we ask for?
After all, New is THE buzz word
And we are all entitled to a piece of it
A New Year and a New opportunity
Let’s give thanks and be joyful
Whilst blessings abound.
