Prayerful Contemplations for a New Year


Dare we wear the frocks of an old year’s passing
into the new… threaded deeds overlapping?
Or bare we anew on fresh laden free wings
the beckoning’s to come of much newer things?

Shall we leave behind what’s said and done
or let them follow… raveling threads undone?
As the coming year, now, knocks at our doors
shall we journey unburdened to newfound shores?

Our inner self charged with tasks overbearing
discarding the cloaks of last year’s wearing
A few days to spend lamenting past distractions
prayerfully packing for the coming attractions

How beautiful the thoughts of renewed attiring
hopes and dreams budding with faith aspiring

 May the coming New Year bring you all that you need
 and may love always resided within your heart's door
 Happy New Year to one and all !!

    The seeds will grow just where they may. Eternal dust showered in springs spray. The new day sun will come and go. And if you have hope, you will come to know. Joy in your soul to find your way. Peace. :)
