Happy New Year 2018

webfinalnewyearfishswimsreworkedpainting20120908-_73Q1040-Recovered

Last year, next year,
same list year after year.
I’ll eat more broccoli,
and less chocolate and chips.

I’ll be kinder to strangers,
and more patience with family.
I’ll open my eyes to sunrises
and hear beauty in rain.

I’ll sing outside the shower
and paint with bright colors.
I’ll draw and write everyday
even when I have nothing to say.

2017 ends and 2018 begins,
I start this New Year,
with a heart brimming
with good intentions.

It’s Christmas

web_DSC0337

 It’s Christmas

it’s the knee of an icon in a red suit with white hair
it’s star shaped cookies and peppermint candy
it’s piles of gifts wrapped in red and green
it’s the warmth of a wood burning stove
it’s a pine tree decorated with lights
it’s the pressure cooker whistling
it’s my brothers getting merry
it’s the posing and pictures
it’s grandkids laughing
It’s siblings chatting
it’s paper ripping
it’s Christmas
it’s tradition
it’s family
it’s joy
it’s
us

Merry Christmas
