A New Year’s Wish–dVerse Open Link Night

A New Year’s Wish
An Acrostic

And here we are—another new beginning!

Nature turns within, sucks earth’s nurturance,
Enters into introspective silence.
Worlds outside my window succumb to snowy silence, shiver beneath a hard white blanket.

Yes, we may settle by the fireplace, think upon life’s latest cycle, spent now.
Each January 1, we muse on what may come in days ahead
And choices we will make: acceptance or resistance.
Ready or not, life comes at us. Will we be open to new possibilities?
So much wonder, a bit of fear plays in our imaginations.

We may resolve, plan, writes lists and action plans
In expectation of promises to be fulfilled, And
So I wish unbounded peace should pour into each life,
Hoping that many drops of joy be yours…and mine.

Claudia is hostess today over at dVerse Open Link Night  We hope that you will join us.

This year I allowed myself to go overboard with resolutions. Last year I don’t think I even made any and didn’t accomplish as much as I’d hoped to. So this new year I figure if I’m able to live up to even 10% of them, I’ll be ahead of the game. So my wish for our world may be grandiose, in the hope that at least some goodness may come into each of our lives.

    You know I am inspired by this to be a bit more concrete. I haven’t made very clear resolutions, but maybe I’ll try at least one. To go not only for outer peace (as in wishing it for the world) but to just put maintaining peace of mind as a priority! There – I’ve written it out! Thanks! Take much care, Victoria, and have a terrific year. k.


  15. kelly says:

    I do hope the best for you always, but especially in this new year… and thank you for your wish for us. I made a resolution last year and can’t even remember what it was. Maybe I should overreach like you…


  18. “expectation of promise(s)” yes, that is what New Year embodies for me.


  19. Lovely, lovely write Victoria. Happy New year to you!


  20. dani says:

    Thank you for the New Year’s Wish. I like your ?neologism? nurturance, and its consonance with silence – word play right up my street!


  25. brian miller says:
