A Poem for the New Year

A Poem for the New Year

Cocooned in the silk of memory
the old year winds itself away
The lights go out
turn on again
we wake to find ourselves
New
opening a different
Pandora’s box
Out of which fly
Joy, dreams fulfilled, love renewed,
the twenty-league boots
of hope
wearing which
we stride into wonderland...

Looking ahead

Now that the New Year's almost here what can one do but look ahead!

Of course, it's tempting to look back too, but I cannot help being reminded of those two famous lookers-back--Lot's wife and Orpheus.

So I keep my eyes firmly and hopefully fixed ahead.
