A New Year’s Day Thought

 

The Only Resolution

I don’t make resolutions

because they are never kept.

But this year I am about to make

just one.

I resolve to add to every list

I make of things to do,

“Have some fun”,

even if the list is a difficult one,

to keep the joy,

to wonder at all the

small gifts that are big

and to remember that

every single new moment

I am given

will be all I ever have.

A Good Place

 

Mostly I find myself
meandering through the days
foot-loose in a cool forest of time.
I wave goodbye to the running
always in circles till dizzy
with exhaustion, too tired
to simply be,

too tired to stop and smell roses
or watch a bird bathe in a puddle,
shaking itself dry just like my dog;
maybe we could all shake ourselves dry.

 Today I find myself in love all over again,
every moment a passionate kiss,
for one at a time, they’re all we have.
I don’t even care how the weather behaves;
no more chastising clouds or
chasing elusive sun;
they have no hold over me anymore,
all ropes are untied;
it feels a good place to be.
