the ghost of year past

2007, 

A clean slate,

wiped clean by the ticking of the clock,

freedom to begin anew

to continue on the same path made harder by twisted resolutions

regrets of things undone, overdone and burnt

haunt this ghost of 2006

yet hints of happiness shine through,

for achievements I once thought impossible

Moments of sanity, new resolutions

all rare and fleeting

I can but hope to do what I had resolved to

and hope that I have the power to

fill the ghost of year future with more happiness and

lesser regerts of things and people undone , overdone or burnt from.

Happy New Year..very philosophical of me and unusual to write poetry, but may this year be everything you wished for!
