no catastrophe
it’s two thousand and thirteen
everything survived
faulty mayan chicken bones?
or just a few days delay?

i’m watching TV
and the noisy times square crowd
counting the seconds
watching the huge ball descend
58 -9- and –midnight!

the old year is gone
it’s two thousand and thirteen
so? how should i feel
with the noise and confetti
wasted by eighty-three years?

i must shrug
aware of horns and fireworks
my cats running round
then there is this sudden hush
i yawn  - stretch – snap the TV

Seriously. This is just me. Y'all have a great New Year.
Love, daver

    Sounds pretty much like my home, too... The kids went out to celebrate with their friends... some where else... Hope your New Year turns out great for you.

    Happy New Year, Daver! I missed the ball dropping this year, but I did see fireworks outside. No horns or confetti though. S'all Kiwi would have needed, she's terrified of fireworks. She'd think, "the sky is faling".:) I'd watched a few video clips of Persian cats, made me think of you and your merry crew! Keep wishes, Love, Mikki

    Daver, make room for me. I'm gonna take the remote from ya. And show you that confetti means you are still kicking another year for us. On the sofa or off the sofa. you never will waste a time for us here or there. I'm bringing over my pup... to help your catastrophic silly nerves, he does not like cats. love your poem*LUV~SKAT

    Razzmatazz is my new black cat, Daver. She is so cute and she is not afraid of people, like my last two cats were. She likes to sit behind me on my computer chair! I wrote of her in my hello kitty poem. I hope your cat with the bad teeth is doing ok.

    hahaha, I LOVE it, Daver. Ever the humorist with all those cats. I was not even watching anything about the news, but I had Razzmatuzz nearby me as I watched some pretty neat movies into the night.
