Free Verse; As the New Year dawns. . .


by Mrs. KT

Thank you to SteveANH for such an inspirational piece of artwork!

A New Year beckons:

Words not yet spoken
Paths not yet taken
Hopes not yet dreamed 

Silently encroaching,
Pulsating at the edge of memory:

Words - betrayed
Paths - encumbered
Hopes - dashed

Fragments of moments lost
By conversations stilled
Malignantly weave
Their tapestry of remembrance:

Words - angrily dismissed
Paths - impetuously closed
Hopes - deliberately destroyed

As the New Year breaks
Upon a pristine landscape of
Sparkling, newly fallen silent snow,
The past surreptitiously makes
Its presence known:


On this glistening first dawn
Of potentialities and new beginnings,

Only a fool would stay
Manacled to the past

Only a fool would fear
What this day brings

Only a fool would miss
This opportunity to renew

A New Year beckons:

Words not yet spoken
Paths not yet taken
Hopes not yet dreamed

I bid the New Year,
And on bended knees,
I most reverently pray 
To God Almighty
That the anticipated days ahead
Will not find me a
Fool. . . once again. . .
