NEW YEAR’S DAY

Author’s note: A little whimsy, completed, so I’ll avoid the holiday rush and move on to something else. Happy New Year! A.S. 

IS TOMORROW JUST another day, or

spring-loaded in a Swiss-watch way,

to shoot us through the bitter year,

dog days of summer, rain, clear,

into another autumn fall,

death in winter

I’ll recall,

regret,

small,

tiny.

Yet,

the sun

will shine

again I bet

and I again

will laugh aloud

ride a bike, hike in clouds

write a song ears won’t hear

write a book that touches dear

The most primal revelations – fear.

Swim in waves of cold rejections, in left-handed presentation

“love the story not the writing,” “the writing’s good the story’s lacking.”

My pessimism isn’t real — I say — but I’m far too deep to grant appeal

I’m blessed beyond the average man so I’ll keep on slinging ink my friend.

    1. I commented from my phone a few minutes ago so I don’t know if it actually came through… What I said was, Sunday Meeting is REALLY good, this is just me wearing my frustrations on my sleeve. I appreciate it though.
