Goodbye to 2019


Recommended Posts

Another Year

Another chance to make it right,
with renewed hope, morning and night.
Begin and end my day on my knees,
fill hours in tune with other's pleas,
and caring for self, walk in the light.

Repeat what worked, discard the blight,
embrace the good and try what might,
enjoy my home among the trees,
another chance.

New Year's on us, almost in sight,
winter sun sparkles on the white
crystals of last night's frost to tease
away gloom and transition with ease
from old to new, I sit and write.
Another chance.

Judi, for me it's just lather, rinse, repeat. (Although I never did understand if they meant reapeat all of it or just the rinse part.) :rolleyes:

But nice Rondeau. Happy New Year!

Tony :happy:

Tinker I enjoy the atmosphere, the 'another chance' which to my mind, is better than a resolution;-) Also like the begin and end on knees -- was just reading that taoist and buddhist hermits in china often have an opening and closing of the day ritual. It reminded me of that;-)
