New Year’s Poem

New poetry– in honor of the dawn of 2018. Changes ringing already. 

New Year’s Poem

did you champagne me
because I sparkle or
because our love is not rosé?
should fireworks remind me
to be surprised by you?

is delight really a substitute
for constancy, devotion,
for roses, not petals
for choosing our bedsheets together?

I will think at clock-strike
what good I am without you
and what color I could be
if I bloomed anew this Spring.

and do I, as snowflakes christen midnight,
want to begin again with you?

or do I conceive
a newborn, pink-cheeked,
lonesome me.

    I admit I don’t usually go for poetry, but I followed your blog and have yet to be disappointed. I find myself reading this for a third time and ‘see’ something deeper each time. It is very good.

      Thank you so much! That’s my favorite comment to get on my work: that someone wants to reread a poem I wrote. I enjoy your blog, too!
