watching the waves

I remember all the good things
that have happened
since I was here last

and I think
of the exciting plans
that we have made for 2011

but it is the prospect
of 365 days
bright, empty and ready for living,
that makes my heart glad

and I turn from
the edge of the waves
to meet the new year

*****

I wish you and your families
happiness and good health
and time to dream
in 2011.

  1. Happy new year dear Alice!

    I went for a dip in the ocean this morning. I imagine your waves are a tad colder.
