A Spirit House Cleaning

Riding a broom

around my home

sliding around the corners

starting the new year alone

Smoothly landing

cleaning each room

sweeping out all negative things

anything that threatened doom

Out the door

went the despair

no more crying

this year a life to repair

Next out the door

went everything bitter

a new year now

sun reflecting ice like glitter

Finally out the door

went the anger and fear

time to release it all

love is near

Sun shines brightly

my spirit is cleaned

winter birds sing in joy

life has been redeemed
