POEM FOR NEW YEAR'S DAY . . .

All Things New

New Year’s Day:
The hangover get sober
unholiday holiday —
The blank page,
new chapter of lifebook holiday —
The glop of clay, blank canvas,
block of stone, unrecorded tape,
masterwork-in-waiting holiday —
The wide-open-road, wide-open-spaces
seat-of-the-pants, no-itinerary,
drive-over-the-unknown-horizon,
mystery adventure holiday.

Last year is suddenly ancient news.
Behold, I make all things new.
What about you?

POEM FOR NEW YEAR'S EVE . . .

New Year's Eve, My Hometown
Ghost-tree silhouettes
On blue-patch cloud-sky:
Nature can’t decide on
Foggy blouse or starry hat
For New Year’s party blast tonight.

I’ll take the gray
When Nature adds accents
To the monochrome:
Soaring fog clouds tinged
With apricot and strawberry,
Like nebulae in Milky Way.
(Which we won’t see till sky returns
’Round middle-March or May)

— 12-31, 2000, Howard Amon Park, Richland, WA

happy 2014 to you Jim and thanks for the great birthday card

You are welcome for the card, Shannon.

It is very windy over here in Tri-Cities tonight (Sunday) as another storm system blows through and clears out the air. I claim it as a metaphor for psyche clutter clearing in the new year.
