A Hokey New Years Greeting

A Hokey New Years Greeting from a blogger who needed something to publish. So…

Another year passed,
another year arrives.
Another calendar in the trash,
another calendar hangs in its stead.
Resolutions made a year ago
that were forgotten by Valentines
are declared again
with a renewed but fleeting hope.
A gathering time to close out the holidays.
One more chance for that familiar celebration
with kith and kin from near and far.
To say goodbye and welcome again.
Once the bells ring and the dawn arrives
what else should one take away
but to realize everyday of life is worthy
of such optimism and praise.
Happy New Years!
May your troubles be mole hills,
Happy New Years!
and your blessings be mountains.

-Matt Thompson
Happy 2014 y’all.
