This is a sample of the poems in my first Kindle e-book Christmas Poetry to Inspire available on Amazon just in time for Christmas.
Merry Christmas everyone
HAPPY NEW YEAR
Sunrise – cold, frosty morning,
a new year has begun.
My wishes are for good health and joy,
Happy New Year everyone.
As we contemplate the year ahead,
with our hopes, dreams and desires,
remember to enjoy the journey
and ignite some creative fires.
Softly close the door on the past,
allow it to drift away.
We’ve learned from those experiences
and can now enjoy this new day.
Each moment passes quickly by
as our life is being renewed –
new breath, new cells, new energy.
Let’s focus on gratitude.
We’re not meant to know what lies ahead,
we just have this moment right now –
to live, to love and to be loved
so let’s do it – we’ll be shown how.
Happy new beginnings everyone.
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
