New Beginnings

New Year’s Day




A year ago today

The boxes surround

Old memories

Both good and bad

 

As time before the fact

The miles abound

New Promises

To make or break


Looking back

At false promises

And lies

And wasted years

Recriminations

Past and present


The road ahead

Real and

Metaphorical

Allegorical

Open

Unending


Like new beginnings

Personal

Professional

An open road

Winds lazily ahead

Or speeds along


Another year unfolds

The boxes unpacked

Unexpected

To test the dream


As seasons come and go

New mem’ries extract

Redirected

Toward new beginnings
