Goodbye to the year.

Wishing all my readers, followers and poetry lovers everywhere a very happy, healthy and fulfilling new year full of only good things.

Here’s a poem I posted some time ago. Hope you like it.

Thank you for following My Life in Poems. And all the very best for 2017.

 

Seeing the old year out

Look over your shoulder

and the year has gone

Gone with the tide

and the sea-washed sandcastles

Gone with the rust of autumn leaves

swept up in a heap

by twilight men

Children are sliding

on the frozen park lake

and the gulls sweep

past my window

Look over your shoulder

Tomorrow is standing

in my light

Turn around for a second

and say goodbye

to the sands as endless

as time itself

and the dust that lies

thick upon remembered things

the sun on the bodies

of golden girls

the sky lit night

the shooting stars

that fell upon your dreams.
