Happy New Year! Wishing you all a healthy and joyful 2023
filled with an abundance of creativity, and I hope you enjoy
my first poetic offering for the new year…
This poem isn’t meant to signify the end-all.
It really shouldn’t, nor does it intend
to lug around such a label…too much liability.
Instead, it dreams of opening like soft petals
of a springtime bloom reveling in the first kiss of sunshine.
It wishes to open like the door of a little quaint cottage
adorned in pastel blues and delicate yellows,
welcoming you inside
as if to offer a cup of tea and a plate of shortbread
so you might feel relaxed and rejuvenated,
but most of all, so you would feel accepted.
