NEW YEAR'S EVE




NEW YEAR'S EVE

ONCE the long month of December was still
and filled with wishes and dreams,
pageants and store Santas, and
hot chocolate and mittens on strings.

NOW it is a battle to grasp the days,
the hours and minutes,
while time laughs and
rushes to turn the calendar page.

  1. Nice.

    Happy new year. I saw on FB that tomorrow is Gavin's birthday. You didn't have him at midnight on NYE, did you?

    1. Thanks.

      Not at midnight. At the last minute, I decided I didn't want to be in labour so I had some wine hoping the pains would go away (not very bright!). Gavin came along about six in the morning and I thought he was the cutest boy in the world. Still do.

      All the best for 2019!
