Let’s Get Going On Our Way

by A. Marie

Wonderment shakes my hand, and escorts me down the spiral stair.
I am eager to meet the ghosts and echoes and shadows that linger there.
I am wistful, for what I leave behind, but gentle past waves farewell;
I am letting all completed and unfinished projects rest upon the mantle.

Re-spout – as to open the new year in glee…

Rambling promises not often long-lasting.

With force the bubbly spews after opening…

The Narrow Road (Farewell) – Haibun

by Bastet

lamplight perspective_2

Today is the last time I will sign my posts 2015.  So many many things happened in this passing year;  wonderful beautiful moments woven together with terribly tragic moments creates in me sensations of starkness, like some fantastic loudly painted mural that perhaps only Picasso might have created.  I will remember it as a year of rapid and impetuous change and as the year I published my first book of waka.  I will remember it as the year I made many wonderful friends and felt the warmth of a loving family both real and virtual.  I will remember the desolation of death that visited twice in a few short months.

A rainbow high up in the sky
A promise made in the pouring rain
As we all hurried by

A “New Year” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

2013 is in the rear view mirror and now we are moving down Highway 2014. Despite all the technology available and traditional navigation methods, moving through time still happens without a GPS or even a map. We may have some idea of where we want to go and how we think we may be able to get there, but reality has a way of tossing up detours and roadblocks we never see coming.

Break Free

by Kerrie Ann Salsac

break free 2014

Watch the countdown, wish time away.
We stay, stuck planning, not moving.
For our hesitation we’ll pay,
as prey sat motionless, losing.

Coming New Year

by Venkat

Let the coming New Year
Be with one reason
To listen to someone’s tear
And bring a fresh season

A season of moments
To value each other
Feel the crack and dents
To hear someone’s bother

Looking Ahead

As the year is coming to a close
I try to put things in perspective
These change as I get a little older
Value of things become selective.

Life is like a merry go round you swirl right up then you plummet back down. The minutes tick tock and the horses  prance and life goes on like a magic dance. Time is a devil time is a thief it creeps up behind you, BOO! then speeds off away as you try to turn over a new leaf.

Look at the puppet who is she, is she the doll or is the doll me? Or am I the puppet master I do not know which is which as I spin and dance faster and fall into a ditch..

The minutes disappear as the hours fly by, days turn to weeks then months as the year flies. Suddenly we find ourselves at the very last tick, time has run out and the candle is at the end of it’s wick. Time is a devil time is a thief it creeps up behind you, BOO! then speeds off away as you try to turn over a new leaf.

Calling in yesterday is like

The warm wave that washes over your toes

Leaving them wet with cold

In a weeping willow moss breeze~

Every round grain of sand,

A verse memorized that sings soft and low

New Year’s Morning

by lonewolfpoetry


I couldn’t sleep that night.

Not with your arm draped across my body

like a heavy vine, making my heart quicken.

I could not sleep knowing what that grey,

new year dawn would bring. Furrowed brows,

stolen glances, an awkward kiss on the cheek.
