"What the new year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year." Vern McLellan
Morning's shadow has yet to drape dewey grass;
barren trees stretch and yawn as birdsong rises and falls
into the last lingering crevices of night.
Routine has me filling the bird feeder
(much to house finche's delight) and walking the dogs,
but I've risen early to embrace this new year of many changes,
and like a feather, (hopefully as beautiful as my red winged friend)
I intend to twirl gently, enjoy the sensation of free falling -
trust letting go can be as easy as that.
