Adieu

Siren Whispers

IMG_5713Like a wave born of a swell

another year is upon us, racing

to the shore

pulling the remnants of the previous year

away to memory

we bid farewell to the old year

a time of growth

awareness

joy and loss

a new year beckons

with the promise a new day brings

tides turning

presenting new opportunities

possibilities to grasp 

with both hands

before they slip away

with the tides…

Happy New Year! Are you excited to see 2019? I know I am. I created my list and made audacious plans. Today we take the first step of our journey. I don’t know if I can achieve everything on my list, but I am working the theory I can do more.

2019-Daily-Writing-Challenge-1-1.

Today Is Day 1 of the 2019 Daily Writing Challenge.

The Challenge is simple: Write something every day.

Write a little, write a lot. Just write. You have all day.

It doesn’t matter if you write 5 words, 5,000 words or something in between. The idea is to establish a daily writing habit. If you miss a day, don’t worry. Write today and report tomorrow on your success.

A great journey begins with one step. A great writing habit begins with one word. Go!

Check back tomorrow for the Day 1 Report and let us know how you did.

“I hope my luck holds out.”

I would rather open my window, let fresh air in

Welcome joy, it comes in small, unexpected parcel

Like yesterday, two strangers said hello as I passed by

That is hope working without the need to think about it

I might be wrong, yet the sound of laughter gives me hope

A gift I wasn’t expecting that made me smile

Seems to me, that hope is a living thing

It is all around us, you don’t have to wish for it

Or pray for it. It is in the air, the rain, people passing by

After all, it was the last gift in Pandora’s box

The wind carries it, carrying it far and…
