Sunrise January 1st
It’s sunrise on January 1st,
what does the year ahead hold for me?
I envision success in lots of ways
and will just have to wait and see.
There are enough clouds this morning
to make a very interesting sky,
darker ones represent challenges
which temporarily pass us by.
A splash of pink shows warmth and promise
of good things yet to come.
A tiny patch of turquoise sky
may have been missed by some.
But I saw what was beyond the clouds-
a glimpse of vast open skies,
showing me that opportunities
can unfold before my eyes.
New beginnings demand dedication
of energy, effort and time,
and following through with intentions,
even when it’s an uphill climb.
As this new calendar year starts
with unfinished business from months ago,
it’s time to resolve what can be salvaged
and let all the rest of it go.
Happy New Year
