A New Year~

Happiness depends on more than years.

All one's moments gather to a wave

Passing in a rolling swell of tears,

Passions too immense to name or save.

Yet New Year's is a crest on which to sing,

Now poised between the future and the past.

Each awaits what course the fates may bring,

Winds that never touch the things that last.

Years turn and turn with an hypnotic grace

Even as the depths of life lie still.

Although above one cannot silence face,

Remember that below the divers will.

Oh what a line! Yes indeed it does depend on much more than that! And reflection is always good! Happiest of New Years and New Beginnings to you! May your Art increase your talent and your fear ride behind your efforts! Hugs
