fallen the night before
footprints on distant shore
capturing fallen light
red rose smiling bright
hands clasped this day
love needed nothing to say
spoken to the skies
snowflakes in our eyes
petals fall in the breeze
whispers spoken to the trees
strong stood aged oak
song where new life awoke
striving for the sun
new path on which to run
In 75 words or less: A New Year. Again. Are you a fan of “new”? Or are you tired of the whole idea of “new,” preferring the tried and true?
