At midnight, he'll propose a toast
and raise to them a fluted glass
as they gaze, muted, at their host.

Though in his eye may sting a tear,
he knows theirs will stay dry, en masse,
as they ring in the coming year.

That he alone bears witness to
this cheerless savoir-fair, is clear
but he's forgot (or never knew)

such camaraderie, at most,
is retrospect to spirits here,
where every guest is but a ghost...

At midnight, he'll propose a toast
that he alone bears witness to...

Chinese New Year

Red envelope
Bursting with luck
Dragons dancing in the street

A BRAND NEW LIFE

A BRAND NEW LIFE!

In time of peace, preach me.
In time of conflict, teach...

When life is forsaken
When strife is a hearkened

A fool will never win.
No skills for boob to give

The game of the chicken
Tame to be no bigger

A mind to do, endure
A brain to have, a cure

Newfangled in its essence
A tangled quintessence

No Happy New Year For The Bereaved

midnight explodes, cheers, sings
life for the new year begins
a mother still wears black

New Year

As needles fall from Christmas trees the year dies,
Midnight fireworks explode with fizzing anticipation.

Another New Year

Well, another New Year is here
Another year older now I am
No more food and no more beer
But really, I don't give a damn

The years, how they go racing by
To try to catch them is a must
Soon will come the day to die
So, in the good lord I must trust

All said and done, I do not know
What really is in store for me
Yet while I'm here my soul will grow
With all it's wondrous mystery

Happy Birthday

Whatever your age. 
You turn the page. 
Another year gone by. 
Do not sigh. 
Every year is a lesson. 
On how to get to heaven. 
The older you are. 
The greater your star. 
With posterity. Comes verity. 
Gone the humbugs. Gone the grudges. 
A new year begun. 
You feel so young. 
The body may not be as good. 
The soul stays as it should. 
Young and vibrant. 
Like an infant, just begun

NEW YEAR

SO MANY BILLS ARE DUE , SO MUCH PAIN 
SO MUCH PRIDE I'VE HAD TO SET ASIDE 
THIS NEW YEAR BEGINS SO PERILOUSLY
AS WE TOTTER ON THE EDGE OF SANITY 
DEBTS WE OWE WE CANNOT REPAY
AND I FEEL AS IF I'M IN SOME COMIC PLAY
I WISH TO THE STARS AND THE MOON IN THE SKY 
THAT AT LEAST IN THIS YEAR I WILL NOT DIE
WE WILL HAVE NO FOOD THIS TIME GO ROUND
AND OUR POOR PETS ARE SITTING IN THE POUND
AND WE HAVE NO ELECTRICITY NOW
AND IF THE SUN RISES I DON'T KNOW HOW
FOR THE WATERS OF MY FUTURE ARE MURKY YET 
EVEN IF  MY LIFE'S ROADS ARE NOT SET

Another Year Nears the End

Another year nears the end
And what a year it’s been
With scattered minds,
Mixed thoughts and emotions.
The need to protect myself is great.
My heart can only be torn 
Apart in so many ways!
Must shut down and close myself,
The vulnerability sets one up
For more hurtful events.
Makes it difficult to love again….
Will enjoy my music and sing along
So soothing to the soul.
Will write my poetry and paint my canvas
And in doing so, relax my spirit,
Bring peace and sanity to my life.
My furry companion brings me joy
And makes me laugh, enjoy the simple pleasures.
With advancing years, 
The love for one’s soul is strong
And the need to Just Be, the ultimate goal.
