My wish for each of you is that you find whatever it is that you seek and truly cherish that which you find in the New Year.
Many of us become ensnared by the stresses, demands, ambitions, and desires in this pressing crucible of life.
The sands in our own hourglasses of life continue falling as another year goes by the wayside. I hope it was a good one for each of you.
Remember, during the hustle and bustle, the yuddy-yuddy/yammer-yammer, and excitement as a New Year begins, take a moment to reflect upon this awesome thing we call Life.
Little scenes come flooding back through the eyes of my mind: The wonder on a child’s face, a rainbow, or a bird in flight. It is the little things that ultimately make up each day. Do you catch the idea?
My New Year’s wish for you is that you each live as long as you want and want for nothing as long as you live.
Happy New Year, Everyone!
This poem comes from Autumn Leaves:
Tightly closed against morning chill,
Holding essence tight like in-drawn breath,
Waiting for an unknown time
On an invisible clock to steal.
Who can fathom such silent wonder,
But stand in awe and ponder?
Majestic in crawling, slow motion,
Thrilling beauty to overflowing portion.
Arms now unfold in radiant bliss,
Greeting sunshine with a fragrant kiss.
Translucent petals, gorgeous disclose,
Sun’s warm rays now caress the rose.
