Ode to New Years

Gallery

 

We string frayed paper and don noise makers-

while exchanging well-wishes and loving embraces.

We, mesh glasses filled with our favorite beverage-

as meaningful pledges fall from our lips.

The night is full of promise-

and, our hopes, they are high.

It’s with quiet reflection, that we welcome a second chance-

while, giving our yesterdays,

a final glance!
