A New Year

 

All hail New Years Day

Let us walk through the threshold

And close the door behind us

Yesterdays travails cast asunder

And in their place,

Lessons earned

 

Let us stand at the window

And throw the curtains wide

So that hope can shine in

While we stand in the middle

And say to ourselves

On this very day,

I will begin again

 

All arms out reached to embrace the endless possibilities

Of  creation

Blind faith

Reinvention

And the path to the future

 

May we tread with gratitude

And wide eyed wonder

At all that comes our way

And greet each moment with innocence

As if every day

Were New Years Day.
