Story Power (Words)

Words that can stir my imagination and take me from the day and paint pictures in my mind are diamonds glistening in the fog of the mundane.

So it’s done,

These concepts imposed called date and time,

Have bought a reason for reflection and hope, and yes, maybe tears,

The noise of celebration and reasons for bells to chime,

We can look back and think what has gone,

And proclaim to family, friends and strangers,

Our heartfelt best wishes for the coming year,

As we join hands as one in unison with the traditional song,

So as we all take stock of our life’s losses and gains,

We pray to ourselves it will be better,

Or if all has gone well in the 12 months before,

Grateful if this next year will at least be the same.

The ‘SUM’

I’m the (semi) urban man,
In a town of approx 106K,
But not far from loads of greenery,
No spreading metropolis that’s all concrete and grey,
Could be better…but could be worse,
So why feel so unsettled?,
What can I say,
Damn this late ‘mid life crisis’ come ‘what have I achieved’ curse.
