For New Years Day



Two headed Janus, before you white snow,
Behind you a trail of regrets in your track.
That pristine white blanket will be marred if you go,
But its beauty won't last, for there's no turning back.

Short and bitter, and none the worse for it.

Thankyou - not really bitter - It came from a discussion among the Gold Dust Magazine staff about producing a calendar for next year so I started thinking about a project to write a poem for every month of the year.

Excellent short for piece that weighs in quite heavy. Best Keith

THankyou Keith,
I was hoping for a few more verses but they just would not come. Perhaps short and bitter is best?

Quite the philosopher! I'm glad I don't do regrets...(waste of time)

True, True, but I hope you don’t disdain the odd resolution or turning over the occasional
new leaf:-)

Absolutely not, David! I resolved to stop smoking and I did (7 years ago)! Might be a bit long in the tooth to turn over new leaves πŸ™‚
