the one we left, the one we’re in, the one after tomorrow
vanished held in memory, hearts still beat, lives forge on
the year quietly disappears ~ a new year emerges amid the
flash of midnight
perhaps, resolutions? Kept for a special day when in honesty
should be at any time, we grow older, they say wiser, are we?
ready for new challenges to face, new paths to explore
along this highway
life alters, awaiting the changes that nature may bestow
~ the unknowing, the underlying, what will come to us
shall we cry in grief, be tormented, understand
this is life
that we held, flutter in the breeze, a dove not wanting to be held
learning who are true and who are not, new ~ giving strength
we cling, can we truly forget the pain of others lost
we are human
met along the way, virtual, not knowing of their lives, the inner
sanctum of themselves, words, lines, offerings and I wonder
as they may who we really are, what makes them tick
curious and curiouser
what brings them joy and makes them who they are
perhaps too deep but my thoughts, my thoughts alone
shall the new year bring more insight into who you
are ~ your lives
that ticks, more quickly as the years pass by
once young with thoughts of many years ahead
now the time is cut by half or more and so we dread
the path ahead
a wine, a distant thought, those we have lost
those left behind and we still remain ~ the time unknown
grasping for those we loved not by our side
tears we weep
take in the new year joy, the changes it will bring
hide the fears of what may come, for they may live
~I may live and tell myself be strong what ever
comes my way
to those I’ve met this year for love, support and more
encouragement and bonding in this virtual world
I never would have guessed – no I never would
so I thank you

Roses are Red
Wine is too
Poetry is damn hard
and the moment you have all been waiting for…or not
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 26,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

In saying the above, yes the New Year brings many thoughts, visions of perhaps events I do not want to know, but I want to say thank you to all my readers who have read my ramblings over the last year. Also thank you for your kindness and words in my new ‘career’ – all of you have been with me along this journey. My life that I share about me, my ‘penguins’ my happiness my woes…and well I’m just grateful.
If you weren’t here ~ I simply would have given this away long ago.
It is NEW YEAR’S EVE here in Australia ~ and I wish each and everyone of you a healthy, happy, love filled, peaceful and beautiful 2014 and I hope that we get to know each other even more in the coming new year.
