And So It Begins ~ Candlelight Troiku

a new year
rising from wild seas
a few stars

filling
the glass with candlelight
champagne

a new year
appears on my calendar
worn days refurbished

rising from wild seas
I look to hope
to bring me freedom

a few stars
write their exclamations
across the moon

filling
idle hours
with memories

the glass with candlelight
warms shadows
I’m afraid to enter

champagne
and a toast to forgetting
walks me away from pain

  2. A new year, a new style blog, and a hopeful series, Susie. I especially love:
    ‘a few stars
    write their exclamations
    across the moon’.

  3. I love the line about the stars writing their exclamation across the moon. Fabulous!
