NEW YEAR

New beginnings

Old endings

The days start

Getting longer

Up here at least

I wonder how they

Feel down under

For me things got

A bit creakier

Things rubbing together

A bit harder

I have to work

On my strength

Overall that is

Quick to go

Slow to get back

At least it’s not

A holiday created by

A greeting card company

Still is it really all that

Big of a deal

The new things

Won’t get finished

Most of them

Bright hopes will

Darken as obstacles

Pop up weeds in the walk

I’ll only lose half of

The weight I promised

I’ll only get up earlier

For a month or so

Then revert to my

Ways of sloth

Not to say there are not

Some good things

But are they so different

Than any other time

You would think I could

Just enjoy it

And get a bug up my ass

About everything
