A New Year’s Day Stroll

The first day of the year

time to take a new path

one filled with possibilities

without wrath


The weather is warm

a breeze flowing through my hair

enchanting scenery

leaves flying in the air


Bird nests from the summer

vacant till the spring

branches forming art

one appears to be a swing


Sounds of chimes

wind creating a tune

flowing through the air

sweeter than in June


Water is cold

still the stream flows

ripples form rapids

causing a waterfall to grow


The winter sun shines

causing shadows in the light

some appear as magical creatures

dancing with delight


Turning toward the cabin

with smells of food to eat

aroma of the seasons

life is sweet
