Happy New Year and thanks

Here’s a big thank you to everyone who has followed my blog, commented on or shared my posts in 2014. Your interest in and support of my work is much appreciated. This is for you:

New Year’s Eve

A day like any other
but we put it in a box –
It’s Wednesday … it’s your birthday …
it’s the day you change your socks.

The thirty-first before the first,
the last day of a year,
an arbitrary numbering
Gregorians hold dear.

Tomorrow is tomorrow
by any other name
with happiness and sorrow
and chances, just the same.

When we say it’s New Year’s Day
it has a hopeful ring;
the old year is behind us
though it doesn’t change a thing.

Every day’s a new day;
all yesterdays have gone.
Each day’s an opportunity
for us to act upon.

Wishing you happiness in 2015!
