Bits Of Inspiration ~ Happy New Year


image from public domain

"Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, 'It will be happier." Alfred Lord Tennyson



☆´,•*´¨★


I heard the wind this morning
A loud whoooooshing
The kind that causes breath to pause
From whence soul humbly withdraws
To divinity

Then it petered and dissolved there
In the calm of unseen atmosphere
Today is yesterday's tomorrow
It's like that the unseen day - Tomorrow
I broke into a hum

Those comforting songs you sing, enfold
When hope whispers at the threshold
Of a moment
[gillena cox]

Writing about the new year in resolutions, non resolutions, hopes, dreams, plans, or merely the acknowledgement the calender has turned over into a new year.

  6. To be in the the future of yesterday can both be an enchanting thought or a reason for angst.. but with awareness we do the best.. don't we?
