To Touch the Future

It was a wonderful Christmas spending
time with loved ones, basking in much
merriment. But today, the house is very
quiet, and I find myself sort of drifting,
slowly trying to find my way back to the
familiar routine.

I will spend these remaining days of
2010 preparing for yet another holiday,
where once again I will have the delight
in sharing the joy and comfort of family.

So for now, I leave you with this bit of
poetic journaling as we say goodbye to
the year.


"Beads of Light, dance, flicker,
beautiful daydreams,
one
stacked
atop
the other,
and I reach out with one hand... hoping,
to touch the future"

a nice bit of verse to cast a positive light on a sometimes negative, or perhaps, off-kilter, time of year.
