THANK YOU, Tess, at Magpie Tales. Thanks for all your creativity...Happy New Year, one and all...
I want to open the windows
in every room,
let the stench
of last year's corruption disappear
in a blur of smoke.
I want to suddenly feel
the promise of springtime in January.
I want my children to be underfoot,
my daily sneezing
to be the worst of it.
I want to forgive all art,
to have poetry
dancing through my wits,
to kiss a prince,
have him stay a day or two.
I want to go through the new year
lead by last year's angels,
and if I'm no longer here at the end,
I want to come to you in a dream
and tell you I'm alright.
