Taking this opportunity, during the dying throes of 2017, to wish you a happy new year filled with new opportunities, love and happiness. For those fighting the interminable battle of wills with the grim reaper, I send powerful prayers and wish you success in your battle. For those simpering in the corner, waiting for the tide to turn, I say, grab every opportunity to cross the great beyond and find your happy place. Don’t take no for an answer. For those who just want to live another year in peace and harmony, I wish them all the best.
As my phone lives out its last few moments (since my battery is dying and the little android cannot recharge to save its life), I want to reach out to all my friends and family and send salutations for the new year.
Hope exists – as long as we keep our eyes open to the opportunities. Don’t close your eyes this coming year. Seek out the truth and support it.
Happy new year everyone and let’s make the new year count.
Colleen, the Fairy Whisperer, has shared her weekly poetry challenge, which is open to everyone.
“Welcome to my contribution to my Weekly Poetry Challenge, where you can write your own Haiku, Tanka, or Haibun using the prompt words of “soar and wait.” Colleen Chesebro, The Fairy Whisperer
This week, I thought I would dabble with tanka poetry for my contribution.
Following the instructions I have created my tanka using the 5-7-5-7-7 rhythm and the prompt from above: soar and wait.
Give it a try and leave your links in the comments or on Colleen’s post.
