Bits of new

 Helen Frankenthaler 'Mountain and Sea', 1952
Helen Frankenthaler's Mountains and Sea, 1952 


When innocent boy
on Jan 1st threshold
whispering
‘Let me in…I’m 2015’ -
We wonder: what will he bring?

New voices?
marching in place
with comfy pillow.

New voyages?
dangerous depth
yet sharpened senses
eye and mind.

Long-range plan?
pot pie soup taste
commitment update.

Not thoughts but acts?
calm center of bubble,
start off right.

The  willingness
to penetrate
to the core of fate?

New ways of
giving  -  novelty
every day?

Or ‘the terror of whole’
that was dug before -
“Divine is never split
into particles…” *


* E. Montale

  1. That is usually how I spend the new Year... wondering what it holds and so afraid it will be more sad than glad but then again that's the glass half empty in me, I think.

  13. Well, we can welcome the new year as it is.
    Some points need to be pondered though but think we should be ready to anything the year has to offer.

    Happy New Year!
