will the new year

Okay, the following poem is not exactly new, I wrote and published it on this blog a few years back as a New Year's wish. But I think it is still relevant today as it was then.

Here's wishing all my readers a very Happy New Year!

will the new year




will

the new day
be

like
    water
       from
the rainfall
       that
    runs
with the
dead leaves
into
the culverts,
to be
lost,
knowing
they
cannot fight
the
pull of
gravity,

or

like the
sunrays
of the
    new
       morning,
scattering
       off
    tree leaves,
the eaves
of buildings,
    angular
       and sharp,
    filling
every corner
every crevice,
    curious,
       piercing

and free

?
