This New Year


Swedish calendar 1712

Old days
Pile up, clutter
The calendar with ink,
Leaving us with nothing but this
New Year.

I hope you are all having a lovely holiday.

    That calendar is fascinating. Your poem speaks to me — always a relief when there is a blank day on the calendar, not so filled up with to-dos. Have a wonderful new year!

    Thanks everyone for stopping by. It feels especially good to hear from my poetry family this time of year.

    The calendar is from Wiki media. If you click on the caption it will take you there.

    Liz
